I'm not sure about the trade, the Wings needed a physical player, especially for the playoffs, and Lang is def. not it. But hey, at least didn't give someone like Dats/Zetterberg.
the rangers won it all in 94, and were a playoff team for a few years after that. you reap what you sow, though...and the wings are going to suffer for this. i'm not the only one who thinks it...there are plenty of analysts who believe that when the time comes for the wings to rebuild....they're going to be feeling the hurt.
what i find especially laughable is that the fans are trying to justify giving away their first round pick by saying, "well, we always get our best players from the 8th round, anyway."
so, you have some luck with some zetterbergs and some hudlers...and you expect it to happen every time? and immediately assume your first round pick will bust, a la golubovsky or kuznetzov?
