Langdon a Habs

Is he the "physical" solution ?

Not a solution of anything, but the more character and intensity Montreal brings in, the better.

I'd love to see a Dwyer-Begin-Langdon fourth line.

Agreed. Considering the Habs are among the softest teams in the NHL at the moment, I think these guys are good additions to the fourth line. Nothing spectacular from Gainey up to now, but clever moves, I'd say.

Nothing spectacular indeed. Where are we going to put all these guys? I really hope Gainey does something about our little surplus soon...

I really like Dwyer. But Langdon is one tough Newfie. "He's as tough as nails" as Bryan Burke said. Here's what hockeyfights.com has to say: "as we all know, Langdon is the best second half fighter in all of hockey."

Here's the link to his fight card, if you're into that sort of thing.
http://www.hockeyfights.com/player.asp?pid=38

Doesn't score much, but he'll lock horns with anyone. Here's the people he's fought:

Scott Parker
Donald Brashear (3 times)

Doesn't exactly "pick his spots" does he? I think this guy can insert a lot of backbone into the Canadiens smaller players. As I've said before, most smaller players don't mind "paying a price" as long as they know there's gonna be a "pay back" somewhere down the road. With Langdon, there WILL be. Great acquisition by Gainey

I like this acquisition by Gainey....Langdon adds some much needed toughness that Montreal is lacking.......he is a character player and our policeman now

I like the pick ups of Begin and Langdon...Definatley addresses some muscle issues...Langdon will fight anyone...and has a chance of winning!!! ...begin is a light weight who is relentless...and able to land the big hit...and is a good defensive player...I don't think both will play on a daily basis...but when were playing teams like Buffalo, Atlanta, Toronto, Rangers, Philly and so on...I can also invision the line of Dwyer Begin Langdon making there presence felt...for some reason I also feel that a trade is on the horizon!!! ...because we have alot of bodies around now!!!

Yup, good additions by Gainey today....looks like we now have a surplus of forwards and a couple will probably be traded now(eg Dackell, Juneau)

Dwyer and Langdon are both left wingers though...

Langdon will be a good enforcer for Montreal. He was with Vancouver, but he can't play a regular NHL shift(can't do anything but fight), so was made expendable. The Canucks are now banking of Brad May to provide some toughness in addition to his regular play.

I'm really upset Darren had to leave Vancouver because he is the only true fighter we have that could go toe-to-toe with anyone in the league.

Enjoy Langdon in Montreal.

I'm really dissapointed we lost Langdon, but I couldn't think of many better fits for Langer than Montreal. Near his home-town of Newfoundland. Langdon is the greatest, happy-go-lucky guy you'll ever meet in hockey. He doesn't make much dough, and he can fight (and win) against the top end of the leagues enforcers.

Langdon isn't huge, by any stretch. He's only 6'0 tall. However, he is one of the better fist-chuckers in the league.

Also, Langdon has been known to kill penalties in the NHL.

My brother played against Darren and his brother in Deer Lake for the local senior mens league. He said that even though he was quite a bit younger than the men, he wouldn't back down from anyone. He said that it was in the family, they would all rather go through you than around you....nice to see that things never changed when he made the NHL. Darren will bring lots of character to the team, especially in the dressing room. It won't take long before his teammates love him and his style...he'll quickly become one of the fan favorites...and I have a Newfoundlander to cheer for on my Favorite team...man...I love fridays.

Need to trade some !

Even if Plekanek and Higgins are send down to Hamilton, the team has still 16 forwards (including injured Koivu and Kilger). They surely won't start the season with more than 14 forwards and 7 d-men.

Assuming that Ryder & Ward won't be sent down without going thru waivers (and risking losing them), Gainey will have to deal a couple of vets to make some room. Some people think that Dwyer is among those who could be cut. I would prefer Gainey to deal Juneau and Dackell, and if he is really lucky to find a trading partner, Perreault and Audette.

Maybe with the right package, the Habs can get Primeau from the Flyers or Laperrière from the Kings, both UFA next spring. Then we will start to have a centre line with some talent and grit - Koivu,Ribeiro, Primeau or Laperrière and Bégin + Kilger who can play left wing too.

I really hope Gainey keeps brooming the old dust out of the team and will not just send down Dwyer, Bouillon, Hainsey, Hossa or Komisarek, because they have two-way contracts and don't have to go thru waivers (??? the yougest ones at least).

I am scared to see Dykhuis and Traverse back on the team because of that .

Langdon sounds alright to me. Hopefully he can create a little more room for Koivu and others to do there job.



We were too damn soft and nobody respected us as a physical hockey team....nobody!

Hopefully this will be the start something worthwhile.

Holy Smokes!

Looking at his resume I only have one question ...Does this guy still have any knuckles left? I certainly hope so, been aching for a real fighter since John Kordic/Todd Ewen

Anyone thinking how sweet it could have been in the playoffs with the Mclaren/Zednik incident? I think Mclaren's smile would be missing some porcelain !!!

Langdon's a great team guy; everyone liked him, even wore the 'C' in one of the X games.

Hope he helps out the Habs and brings them the toughness they need.

Looking forward to watching and seeing what he does this year. All the best to him in Montreal. Miss him already.

BTW, Langdon has 4 young kids... 3 of them (girls I think) are triplets!

Good luck LanGOON.

Wow! I hadn't realized Darren really was a fan favorite in Vancouver. Being a fan favorite without having particular offensive skills or talent is something meaningful, IMO. He must be the hard worker with the never die attitude the management is looking for to have so much fans having nothing but good comments about him.

Thanks for the input, guys! Very appreciated!
