While no other media outlets are making the same report, NHL GMs from all 30 teams are currently gathered in Las Vegas for meetings this week, making it a prime place to set the stage for trades between now and the March 9th deadline.

The Red Wings have scouted Lang off and on all season but have held off persuing Lang further because of the three years and $15 million remaining on his contract. Capitals GM George McPhee has stated recently that with the trade of Jaromir Jagr to the New York Rangers that he wouldn't have to trade Lang.

straight from my favorite source for wings
not from a very reliable source

(also wings playoff ticket prices have been raised to make up for the Hasek disaster)

I hope not ! Lang is the last thing we need. Holland should offer up a package for a Ryan Smyth type player if he is trying to make a move.
