Daymond Lankgow or David Legwand???

Just interested to see who would you like more to have as your second centerman if Ribs traded during the year.

I understand that it depends on the price but I believe the price would be close to equivalent for those two, so who would you go for???

There's doubts as far as those two are concerned but I like their speed and size but my choice would be Legwand. If DL could forget how to always be on the DL..... he could be a nice bet. And that speed with Kovy and Sammy could be just fun to see. And I still have more confidence in his offensive abilities than in Langkow's abilities so....

Legwand is my choice.

P.S. (Intention was not to have two DL's facing each other but two realistic names that could be tradeable assets without looking at guys like Malkin, Crosby and Lecavalier....you know the moves that will never be made....)

1) Langkow isn't going anywhere, because he's the closest thing the Flames have to an offensively-minded centre.

2) I'd like Legwand, but I dunno if we could trade Ribeiro for him.

I would take Langkow. He is a consistant 20+ goal scorer the last 4 seasons and 50+ pts in the last 6.

Langkow in a heartbeat above Legwand, and Legwand over Ribeiro

Ribeiro is younger and cheaper and he's more a playmaker than a scorer, while Langkow is a scorer. We need more a playmaker than a scorer because we have a lot of scorers in both wings with Ryder, Higgins, Samsonov, Kovalev & Perezhogin.

Legwand is a big bust.

I'd take Langkow to be a 2nd line scorer. Langkow is the more proven scorer. But I think he makes more than Legwand. Legwand is still a bit of a project. He'd be a gamble that would require a medium to long term investment to see a big return. Langkow would be a decent stop-gap for a season or two, bringing about 55-65 points and a good all-around game. At this point, Langkow seems like the better fit.

at this point i see no reason to do anything. Ribs is our #2 center live with it and move on. Ribs has twice as much offensive ability as both of those centers put together.



If ribs can become a little more consistant, he will make a lot of you sorry for doubting him.

Ribs is young and has lots of time to improve. He can only get better......


Gainey will not change our 2nd line center unless ribs falls flat on his face.


I doubt that will happen, Ribs will have the best wingers he has ever had in his life this season. I expect him to raise his play level



AND HE IS CHEAP$, and he is a life time hab fan. HE will improve i have faith...

I'd take Langkow, primarily for the extra bite he brings to the game over the others. He might not be much more or less on offense, but he also plays with an edge that makes him more valuable.

(And then I'd ask Terry Ryan if he wanted to try a comeback too...)

Legwand has great speed, but the whispers are that his hands aren't that great and he might not be the smartest player.

Langkow is a third line center imo. Decent utility guy who can do a bit of everything, but he's small too.

Ribs has hands and vision and despite being thin, goes into the corners consistently against bigger guys. I thought he improved his all-around game last year (defensively, especially).

We do have to get bigger in our top 6, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Ribs put up 70-80 points with Samsonov and Kovy.

BTW, Terry Ryan's a big muisic guy. After he did a few stints on PJ Stock's show, he called in Melnick's one afternoon. Apparently the Ryan family is one of those that has thousands of records,tapes and cd's dominating their home. I think they may be mulling over having him do periodic bits on one of their shows.
