i absolutely loved langdon. he was just so damn smart and tricky during fights. he didn't have the punching power but boy did he win a ton fights out smarting his opponent. and he would fight anyone, much bigger fighters and heavyweights and he would win. sure he didn't KO them, but he would more often than not come out on top. a few that stick out in my mind were his couple of bouts against stu grimson. the grim reaper was a mountain of a man, but langer would always beat him, convincingly too.

Now that last part I don't remember. Langdon struggled greatly against Grimson, hell, from 95-97 it seemed like Big Stu about destroyed all our guys - Langdon, Vandy, Churla.

If Lagndon had a weakness, especially his last couple of years, it was that he struggled with the super heavyweights - Grimson, McCarthy, Brashear, etc.

Who since the lockout has been your favorite fighter?

Most effective?

And who would be the pound for pound best fighter?
i think Haley will be good...but i always a fan of Langdon.

You better check your memory banks - or better yet - Youtube. Langdon was beaten to a pulp twice and both times it was by Grimson.

Now that's what I remember. Grimson was like one man Ranger wrecking crew at that point.

Avery fought a number of times for the Rangers. He's the one who took on Carcillo (a much bigger player) after Carcillo wailed on Gaborik. You might not respect him but he took his bumps and bruises for this team. Finished one playoff game with a ruptured spleen. Not saying he should still be here but he was no coward.

yeah wow, i guess i really did mix it up there. i think the grimson fights with langdon stood out in my memory, but I must have mixed it up with another series of bouts, now if only i can remember who langdon DID own.

also kids, marijuana abuse in teenage years really does affect memory

It may have been Langdon who got Sam Rosen off his anti-fighting campaign.
