It was his 1,000th game. The Stars honored him in a pregame ceremony, which I guess is pretty nice, considering he is a new player there.

It's not like he was a new player to their organization though. Out of those 999 games played, 435 of them were in a Stars' jersey. Very nice gesture though....

You must've missed that it was revealed that Langenbrunner was asked to waive his no-trade clause during training camp and refused.


I am starting to wonder how different this season would have been if he'd just waived the stupid NTC to begin with. Maybe this season would have been doa with MacLean anyway but this team was subpar at best with Lemaire too at the end of last year and the first few games this year until Langs got traded.

Funny how he was whining about MacLean and Rolston getting scapegoated when in truth he was the first target and rightly so after last year.

It was pretty great when Lemaire got re-hired that he tore the C off Langenbrunner in that first practice.


Is this true?

His smirk really irritates me

I am glad to see his low-class act gone


It's not rocket science to figure out that since Mac was fired, Lemaire hired, and Langs gone, the team has played considerably better.

This team had a locker room issue, and it is evidenced by the Devils play of late. Also, you can see that Lemaire has "fire" in his eyes, as evidenced when he called time-out against the Isles after their two quick goals and his bench talk was not all that "friendly"...

I hope Lemaire is back next year!

Langenbrunner's performance this year is on Lou and management. He should have been let go in the offseason (possibly for a greater return) after that pathetic showing last year with the C on his chest.

Thanks for 2003, k bai.

I would have been happy if they just waved his ass as soon as the season was over. I guess it worked out that we get a pick now but at what cost? I'm with NJDevs4978 in thinking the season could have looked much different without him this year.

without langy and with lemaire still here, we could have been a top contender, but no need to dwell on it anymore.

And what if that draft pick we got turns into a Patrik Elias (who was also a 2nd round pick)..... I get you have the blind man-crush and all... but can we see what player we get for the pick before you blindly claim this a loss???

Not to mention this Devils TEAM looks like one since the trade went down.... go figure... even your boy Kovalchuk is scoring B )

Are you a retard?

Langenbrunner gave us many good years and was a good leader. I feel bad that his 1k game wasnt in NJ, but I wish him success in Dallas. Good for him.


Exactly. Just because he left NJ means that he has to have a sh!tty end to his career? :rolleyes: Good for Jamie. I wish him the best down in Dallas.

If Lemaire hadn't fake quit or been secret fired last year, I bet Langenbrunner agrees to waive that NTC in the offseason. With the combination of the two, this season could have had a very different outcome.

Langenbrunner wasn't the only person who wasn't thrilled with Lemaire. This season could have had a very different outcome, but with how horrendous Brodeur played, I don't think it would've ended in a playoff berth. One thing being overlooked with this nice winning streak is that the Devils still gave up 10 goals in the last 4 games.

Oh no doubt. I think the injuries killed us more than anything, but it does make you wonder. Like I said, even if the last 10+ games don't show it by the final score, this is a much different team on the ice than it was in late November. I think Lemaire needed some time to pull them out of the funk that MacLean left them in.

Still, makes you wonder.

I hated the Lemaire hire when it was made and I didn't want to fire him last year if it meant bringing in MacLean. Rookie coach + team made up of mostly salty vets with built-in locker room issues = recipe for disaster.

Blow-J, can you explain what the word "retard" means?.... I don't understand your usage.
I'm guessing that you disagree with my opinion on Langebrunner and I am really hoping that it isn't a personal attack, because that kind of stuff gets you suspended here.

I dont get why someone would be upset over a, now ex-devil's career. Not to mention Langs is bigger in Dallas (pun not intended) then he was up here in NJ. He is a skilled player but he just didnt offer what was needed in the last year or two here. Thats fine and he should be able to go else where and prosper with his career. You guys shouldnt be sour about him at all. You shouldnt be sour about any other player that was once a Devil. Moving to a different team is part of the business. You cant judge someone just because they left NJ. He apparently has chemistry forming down there with his line mates which is great to see. Its nice to see someone jump ship intime.

Do the right thing here and be happy for the guy. Its the least you can do as a Devils fan for everything he gave us in the past.
