Captain Clutch, Sad to see you go here in NJ. As a Devils fan from there inception I've watched the "C" come and go over the years. Jamie has been one of the best leaders we had on this team. Something happened in NJ this year, the team that looked so darn good on paper failed to deliver. With the worlds greatest goalie, two new solid defensive giants and an offensive arsenal that would have been anyone's fantasy dream team in years past, nobody would think 30th place. Maybe it was the loss of Parise, Salvador, Brodeur, Volchenkov and all the other players they have lost to injuries this season. Maybe it was a soft spoken 1st year coach, in all time Devils leader scorer Johnny MacLean who was unable to have his team gel around him. Lots of people think it had to do with a highly paid Russian superstar, the summertime contract drama involving Kovy, or his inability to adapt to the Devils hard back-checking, defensive orientated style.

What ever it was "MY" team hit a wall. As a fan from the Green & Red days, I'm behind this team every game, go to every home game and watch win or lose no matter how painful it is. Teams win and lose, Coaches get fired, Captains get traded, teams miss the playoffs. Sad thing is a Good Captain, stopped having fun playing for the team he loved and it showed at no fault to him. When the job you loved becomes a chore it affects everyone around you and that is why Jamie Langenbrunner is back in Dallas. Good luck to you Langs.

This has to be the most eloquent post of yours I've ever read.
Impressive and Well written.

We DO NOT win game 7 in Ottawa without Jamie. He sacked the fvck up and scored 2 huge goals in that game to get us going, and I will NEVER forget that. It was a bumpy last 11 months or so, but I will always appreciate the many positive contributions Langs made to this franchise in his 9 years. Good luck in Dallas Langs. Thanks for 2003.

Good post. However, the part I have issue is "Jamie has been one of the best leaders we had on this team". That is definitely false, and the stories that have come out recently prove that even more.

Thanks DevilinLA.

ThreeCups, Langenbrunner was one of the best leaders and captains the Devils had. Even some of the players (Elias, Zajac, Parise and White) had mentioned this over the last day or so since his departure. Maybe the last year or so it has turned sour and that is what is rumored to be hearing right now about Langenbrunner.
