Langenbrunner to Dallas. 3rd round conditional pick coming back

444 posts in this topic

The Devils will get a pick in this year's draft no matter what. From the way I understand it, the Devils are assured of at least getting the Stars' 2011 3rd round pick. If the Stars win a round this year, that pick becomes the Stars 2011 2nd rounder. In addition, if Langenbrunner resigns in Dallas, the Devils will send their 2012 3rd rounder to Dallas for the Stars 2012 2nd rounder.

so it could potentially turn into two 2nds.

Not bad Imo

I'm pretty sure we can't get two second round picks.

If the Stars win a playoff round or re-sign Langenbrunner before July 1st, we get a 2nd this year.

If the Stars don't win a playoff round and re-sign Langenbrunner after July 1st, we get a 3rd this year and a 2nd next year in exchange for our 3rd next year.

If the Stars don't win a playoff round and Langenbrunner signs with someone else, we get a 3rd this year.

So we're going to just scrap everything and rebuild I guess. Are any of the centers in the upcoming draft playmakers? That's what we need is a decent playmaking center. Zajac isn't one and Arnott is losing his polish. We really need one for Kovy. Hopefully if we can't get one at the draft we can find one in UFA or trade. I think there's still some decent playmaking centers that can be had for a decent price.

The Malkin for Parise deal doesn't sound that as bad as it did a month ago.

I wasn't expecting much of a return, so I'm not upset with what Lou got back. Funny how for all the bitching that went on about Langs here, from everything from his on-ice performance to his attitude, suddenly fans are pissed that Lou didn't get much back. This wasn't so much about making a big deal as it was about shaking this thing up. This so needed to be done...

Agreed. This is a team that's less than the sum of its parts. It must be rebuilt. It's also pretty obvious that this is the case, which doesn't help the bargaining power.....

I think that is a jump to conclusions. To me this move was more about getting something for Langenbrunner before we lose him for nothing.

Langenbrunner is already being used better then he was in NJ. He is being used in a checking role on the 3rd line with Burish and Ott. Why couldn't a coach in NJ use him properly?

Then you'd just be bumping up another guy who otherwise should be third-line checking winger.

Well you could also call someone up from Albany who is expected to be a future 1st or 2nd liner. I don't know if any of those guys are ready for that role yet though.

this doesn't matter. the buyers are more desperate than the sellers. the devils are going to miss the playoffs regardless of what they do.

so you think that lou deliberately didn't want to get a 2nd round pick? is that what you are saying? i think langenbrunner is a worse player than wisniewski at this point in their careers, but even if you don't think that, you have to think they're at least close and that one has a no-trade.

Might just be that you're willing to take less to trade him to a non-rival, such as Philly who, reportedly anyway, was offering two 2nds. Although for this year's purposes it wouldn't matter if we traded him to the Rangers and got spanked in the remaining contests.

Are you able to identify this mythical creature?

No I'm saying Lou might not have had much of a choice but to take the lesser deal (but now it's obvious we are getting a 2nd anyway which makes the deal better, just a matter of whether it's this year or next year). Odds are Jamie was going to be selective on where he waived the no-trade to go since multiple teams were making offers.

i have not heard from any source that the flyers were offering 2 2nds. i have heard they were offering two picks. furthermore, philadelphia doesn't have a 2nd in the upcoming draft, they traded it to phoenix in the upshall-carcillo deal. the flyers also do not have a 2nd round pick in 2012, they traded that to tampa bay for andrej meszaros.

No that's why I said I don't know if any of them are ready. I was just pointing out that having another checking line player on a scoring line isn't the only way to have Langenbrunner off the top two lines.

Philly doesn't even have a 2nd this year so I doubt that was true. More likely it was a 3rd and a 5th.

Tremblay talking about Jamie...

He said that Jamie was a negative leader for the past two years. He said that Lemaire benched Langenbrunner in OT in a crucial game towards the end of last year and was selected by JL for the shootout and Jamie told him he wasn't going. Parise talked to Jamie on the bench and Jamie decided to go. There was several little "fights" between JL and our ex-captain and moving him out of that locker room will be a positive for the NJD.

I'm not sure where Tremblay is interviewing right now, but this guy and Jamie sure didn't get along. Tremblay is also the guy who said they wanted to take the C off Jamie last season but they decided Langs would be too mad about it and decided not to.

Fine, but the details of other supposed offers isn't the issue. It's meant to illustrate a plausible scenario where a team would take less in a trade than what other teams were offering. See., e.g., Johan Santana trade.

Wasn't there a kerfuffle because Jamie didn't come out and salute when he was one of the three stars against Atlanta?

Yes, saw that disclaimer after I responded. Apologies.

Ya, Langenbrunner already knew he was gone at that point, we now know with hindsight, so apparently coming out for the 3 stars was too much since he's not legally obligated to do that to fulfill his contract.

I don't care about the 3 stars really, I just want to emphasize what a sourpuss he seemed to have been, from the outside looking in, for the last year or so.

If Langs knew he was gone it would have been a nice image for him to come out during the three stars. It would have been meaningful.

At least play the part and do a good acting job. Damn, look at Rollie. His situation was WAY worse than Lags. The whole world knew we tried to get rid of Rolston, and that he was only playing because nobody else wanted him and we are stuck with him....

if you don't know what the conditions are, it's pretty silly to judge this deal quite yet. this is what you get for not waiting for the deadline, by the way - values go down, not up, because teams don't want the extra salary.

you think he'd have been worth more at the deadline? i'm confused here.

I'm glad Lou asked Langenbrunner to waive his NTC this past offseason, I'm not glad that Langenbrunner said no. :lol:

yeah - nice to know. once you're asked, the writings on teh wall

I just logged onto NHL.com, and lol at the headline "Devils trade Langenbrunner back to Dallas in blockbuster deal".

Considering Langenbrunner could control where he went, the return is adequate. If Jamie didn't want to go to a division rival, OK. If Lou turned down a better offer from a division rival because they are a rival, then that's dumb.

I wonder where this interview actually is? I don't read HF much. Does this poster have enough of a reputation to where it's safe to assume this post is reliable?

Ya, it was on one of the French radio stations it was mentioned later. He posted the links over there but I don't know French so it doesn't help me much. :lol: I don't think it's being made up, but that's just my opinion.

Hmmm ... makes me wonder how many Langs stories are gonna start popping up now that he's gone.
