SHORT ANSWER:

Haha, I had to do a research paper on him for one of my high school classes. It amazed me the difference of opinions from history books (where he is written about as a hero who was cast aside in favor of Washington) and online (where everyone just thinks he was a terrible person).

Langs needed to go and I wanted him out as much as anyone but that said I won't boo him. Whatever happened he handled wrong in my opinion but I do have way more happy memories of him that way out the crap at the end.

Comparing a player who was an incredible part of our 2003 cup and many other memorable moments to Bendict Arnold is a bit much but I seriously hope that it not an advocation to boo him. I don't believe you mean that but I could be wrong.

Let's show some class this evening. This is not Scott Gomez saying "see you in Newark" and then signing with the enemy.

Was he a baby at the end? Yes. But everyone has petty moments and actions that I am sure they could wish can be redone.

Langenbrunner could have been a double agent for the NYR, and I would still love him.

Sorry, guys.

That's probably the best thing that can be said about the situation for the game tonight.

What I mean by the comparission is that he did great things but most of this is overshadowed by his defection and the fact is that it shouldnt take away from his previous greatness.

Bingo, thought so.

It really is amazing how good our record was without him last season.

Tonight scares me, something tells me Jamie will play with a chip on his shoulder.

For me, Gomez left on much better terms. Played as hard as he always did and then exercised his free agent right to leave.

Although I was happy Gomez left because I didn't love his on ice play to begin with.

Captain Grumpypants! What I found funny was that I was hating on him, then I come home from college, go to the Coyotes game last year and he scores a goal...I half cheered/half booed lol

Don't boo him then JVBK can't raise Langs #15 next to Johnny Mac's #15. If he still did it would be quite akward.

And to think some people here want to trade for an aging, declining player who fights publicly with his coach.

Have we not learned anything?

it was either that or talk about who shot the puck at Julien, who threw the skate across the room, why Sykora was soft for sitting out the playoff game, or why Niedermayer shouldn't have had his jersey retired.

The news article pushed us down this path but feel free to redirect to any of the above.

retiring #27 was absolutely ridiculous. is he talented? sure . thatís what the HHOF is for. our ceiling is for people who were true devils, inside and out, for the VAST majority of their career. hell, brylin deserved it before that pretty boy.

am I doin it right?

And what's with this "Hey, you suck" in RnR Part 2? Classless

And can't we get our old goal horn back?

Benedict Arnold wasn't so well liked in Saint John either

Quote:
The family moved to Saint John in 1787, where Arnold created an uproar with a series of bad business deals and petty lawsuits.[104] Following the most serious, a slander suit he won against a former business partner, townspeople burned him in effigy in front of his house as Peggy and the children watched.

Ah suck it Langs was a great value player for a long time. If you don't feel like cheering then don't boo the guy. Remember the good times.
