Darren Langdon

As much as I like Darren for his hard work and excellent team attitude, I think in this next series against T-bay we'd benefit more playing a quick defencive forward like Sundstrom(when he comes back) or Dackell cause T-bay isn't nearly the size of Boston and don't play as much of a physical game. If things get quite rough throughout the series I think we'd need to throw him in to the line-up but I don't think it will be anything some of our other big players can't handle. What you guys think?

I kinda agree, Tampas not the team to go out and land punshing hits after punishing hits. Im praying sunny comes back.

Although like Doug above me said, Roy could be a problem.

yes but he could go out and bust up one of our star..(kovy,koivo )\
he could break one of there legs and only get 5 min and and get suspend for the rest of the play offs..it wouldnt hurt tampa one bit..they still got another goon to replace him ..that all im scared of..

i can see it now....roy is a loose nut....he might take one for the team so to speak..

Langdon plays a fine role on the 4th line. Julien mostly rolls out three lines and he can be used as an energy guy is there's a need to. He doesn't hurt the team and he can have a use.

Being that he's my cousin, I've got to defend him. He's not just only for tough guy moments. He's not too bad defensively. Personally, I think that when he plays with Begin, we've got a duo that can spark energy at the toughest of times. Not to mention I'd rather have a fourth line full of tough guys if we avoid getting another Zednik-like injury.

Plus, he scored a huge goal for us. We've got to repay him for that.

Yup. Far off, now, but I've met him several times.

Have an autographed Carolina jersey of his, which I was very tempted to burn in 01-02.

I have a friend in Bonavista that's gonna tell me when Ryder comes home the summer, too. Hopefully I'll get a chance to meet him and get him to autograph my #73 jersey. :p

Langdon is great. He provides a lot of energy & doesn't take dumb penalties. Plus, the guys like him and he's a good person to have around when there may be some animosity in the air.

Langdon is a keeper.

Plus, he can apparently score big goals! I think he's playing quite well, and I'd like to have him lay the body on these fancy bolts right from the word GO!

Let Sundstrom replace Dagenais. Langdon has shown more so far in these playoffs.

Add the Hollywood factor - we've got Ashton Kutcher's twin brother, Steve Buscemi's illegitimate son (son of a Portugese soccer star, yeah right!) and Hugh Grant's cousin...

...sorry, my wife (who despises hockey pointed these likenesses out)

Yea, I'm from a town about a 30 minute drive from Bonavista. So when Ryder brings the cup to Bonivista for a visit this summer when it is his turn to have it.... I'm there!

I think it's going to depend on what kind of lineup Tampa bay ices...they have a few tough guys on their team, namely, Andre Roy and Chris Dingman, and if they both play, I think that Langdon has to as well, just in case, if not only to keep Roy and Dingman honest...another player on Tampa Bay that I hate when the Habs play agsint is Cory Sarich, he's a huge hitter and very physical, probably one fo the most underrated physical d-men in the league...
