Its also what we have been expecting from Jagr. And some thought that Lang was overpaid at $5m. Who knew?
With the C up for grabs on this team, is Lang proving that he should stay and that he is in fact the leader?

He's certainly making a case for it. Big question is....does his play make him more tradable now? If so, what kind of message woud it send to the team, and the fans if we moved him?

I was usually happy with Lang last season. At times, I thought he was weak with the puck, but what else can you ask for? He almost tied his career best season last year. Now he's poised for a breakout season.
