Honestly, I like Lang. I was just responding to HD's claim that Hudler is defensivly enept, slow and not physical. Lang is all of things as well.
And while we are on the subject. Mikael Samuelsson, Tomas Holmstrom and Jason Williams all fit this bill too (well, Williams has a little bit of speed). HD thinks he has pin-pointed the reasons why Hudler doesnt see more ice time. I am just curious why players of the same ilk do recieve the ice time?
I don't buy that, Lang is successful in the playoffs because of how he uses his size in the playoffs.
