He's pretty polarizing around here. People seem to love him or hate him. I'm closer to love, just because most of his career here was quite good, and overall I think he did more than was expected while he was here...the 10 playoff goals in '03, a 29-goal season...I know it ended ugly around here (how ugly depends on how much you believe what you read), but I choose to hang on to the good memories I have of him.

So good for him on getting to 1100 GP.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Last night they reminded me of why I once liked Langs so much. I forget if it was Steve or Chico, but they pointed out that when Marty was cutting the net off after win #552, Langs stepped in and said something like, "Take a victory lap, I've got this," took the scissors from Marty and continued snipping.

It's a little thing, but I like it nonetheless.

Congrats to Langenbrunner on Game No. 1,100.

Langs also scored the game-winner for the Blues- great way to celebrate 1,100. Congrats Langs.

I liked Langs until he became whiny and acted like he didn't want to play for the Devils. I'm sure I could understand his frustration from the inside and seeing a team he probably thought wasn't going anywhere and he is in the twilight of his career but when you stop caring about the team the fans stop caring about you....and they'll turn on you something fierce.

But I digress, a few good years and a fair share of good memories so Congrats to Langs!

This is how I look at it. It was definitely time for him to leave and for the team to move into new leadership.

Came here to say pretty much this, well said.

Good for him, on both the goal, and a lengthy and eventful career.

But I'll still be referring to him as Captain Crybaby

its only sort of related because it involves langenbrunner, but I actually got a chance to play a hockey game with Jamie this past summer. His kid Mason goes to the Steve Jenssen hockey school up in Minnisota and I was up that way taking my younger brother to the camp as well. At the end of the week they have Steve the instructers and any of the parents or siblings of the campers that think they can keep up go on the ice for a game. Ended up getting an assist setting him up for a one-timer which, by the way, is way faster than it looks on tv. Also on the topic of slapshots that are way faster than they should be. Mason, Jamie's kid, has a wicked slapshot for his age. The whole motion looks spot on identicle to his dad's shot and he was out on the range ripping slappers over 60mph already and he's just a scrawney little 10year old. By the time that kid is 18 he's going to have one scary good shot!

Long story short I have a lot of good memories of Jamie and the more time passes the more I can forget about what may or may not have actually happened at the end of one season here and instead just remember that this guy gave everything to this team and its fans for a lot of years. Not everybody is meant to stay on one team for an entire career and I think jamie had become just another veteran presence that we had plenty of. The move to the Blues was the right one, because they were a young team that needed someone like that the same way Z&Z needed Pops when they were first breaking into the league.

I wish Jamie all the best and hope he and the Blues go all the way ... unless they run into the Devils in the finals in which case :noclue: sorry Jamie GO DEVILS!

Good for him! Always like Jamie and for me, the fact that Zach and Marty supported him so much and still say he was treated unfairly by the media is enough.. They were in the trenches with hi and they know what went on so if they support him how could you not?

2 Goals in the '03 ECF Game 7 on the road.

Plus he was traded, didn't leave as a FA.

Enough said.

Kind of nice to see Devils fans not talking about what a dick or cancer Langs was for a change.

Very cool story.

So we should expect to be drafting Mason Langenbrunner at some point in the future :D
