PLAN B: ROBERT LANG(DONE DEAL + RESIGN BRISEBOIS).UPDATE:....OUT OF SUNDIN RACE

UPDATE:TSN REPORTING BOB GAINEY HAS SAID SUNDIN IS NOT GOING TO BE WITH THE HABS.

5:59: ROBERT LANG IS A HAB. HABS GAVE 2nd Rounder.

Habs Resigned Patrice Brisebois 1 year deal.

RDS reporting Robert Lang is set to join the Montreal Canadiens.

Notes:

This does NOT mean Habs are pulling out of Sundin Race, Although strange.

Rumors Started Coming Out This Morning That Lang Was Traded.

No Word Yet On If Its Players Or Picks Or Prospects. Headed The Way Of The Hawks.

If This Is Gaineys Plan B...Its Kind Of Disappointing, But I Must Say Gainey Knows Best(If We Forget About Samsonov)

Who will centre the second line in Chicago now??

corey said...

im surprised chicago traded lang...they were promising but they needed that leadership, to not even get a player back is kinda disaapointing for chicago

Lang is the last player I would want on my team. He half-asses it and has a bad attitude. He was disgusting to watch in Detroit, by far the worst player on that team when he was there. Good for Chicago to get rid of him. Thumbs down, Bob Gainey

I'm not sold on Lang but he will have some quality players playing with him TY, regardless of which line he's on. He will be 2nd line C and will get PLENTY of PP minutes, therefore his fantasy value just went up. He won't be paid $4m to play on the 3rd line.

Lang is coming in to play #3 behind Plecanec and Koivu.....I am pretty sure he will do a fine job.........he had 54 points last season, this year he will have better linemates even if it's considered a "3rd line" in Habsland!!

I like the move......

I had this posted on my blog at 8:27 pm! Good job though Scotty its seems that Mats has narrowed it down to 2 teams.

I keep hearing Toronto and Vancouver are it for Mats.

Shut the fuck up "The Source" your just fuckin' guessing about Mats like everybody else and your not hearing shit!!!! NOBODY knows about this except Mats..And theres no way he goes to VANCOUVER!!!

smoothleb said...

lol this whole sundin thing is ridiculous he isnt even that good with toronto he was decent but thats cause there team sucked balls there was no one else to but up points... Matts is not goin to vancover he is gonna waste the year to decide and decide to stay with toronto

Lang is a good pick up for the habs. He has played on winning teams before and knows what it takes to win. He was a good leader (stated by Denis Savard) and being on the last year of his contract he might even surprise many. I do not think for a moment that BG is done. He is gearing the habs for a run at the cup. As for Sundin; I have a feeling he has made a decision and told BG. Sundin does not want to play in Montreal because of his Toronto affiliation.

if this is BG's big move to get the habs a cup he's nuts, they did't need another radek bonk, they needed some one big that can put up alot of points not join the lackluster 50 that montreal players have beeen known to get now.

DC - It's funny because pretty much every coach that has coached Lang says the exact opposite of what you say.

Wonder who to believe....
