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.


Sure, I feel that way about players who leave on a good note, which is almost all of them. I don't feel that way about players who I think pouted for a year and acted like a baby before they left.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Super duper. Langenbrunner got his millions and his adulation from NJ. I think he'll be fine.

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.


I am sorry but I am not a hockey fan that is all about "feel-good"

I bleed Devils' red and when a player dogs-it or has a bad attitude and he is the captain no less...well good riddance... I don't hope he does well on any other team not named the Devils...fvck all other teams not named NJD....fvck all other players not in NJD uniforms.

You're missing the point. The anti-Langenbrunner people are not angry at him for leaving. He got traded, so that wouldn't even really make sense. They are angry at him for quitting on the team last year and spreading his bad attitude throughout the locker room. Yeah he had some good seasons here and I'm sure everyone appreciates that. But as captain he never led us to any playoff success (before you say it, I know it's a team game, but after three straight first-round flops, it's worth mentioning) and he wrote his ticket off the team with his terrible play and demeanor in 2010.

while i do appreciate everything jamie did for this team, especially '03, it's very hard for me to forget that our captain decided his beef with the coach was more important to him than winning, or even being a leader to this team, during the playoffs, when they would have needed him most.

i didn't know this and i was surprised to find out that jamie did not waive his nmc. did he ever give a reason? he had to know if lou came to him with this that it might be in his best interest to look around. unless lou gave him a list of interested teams and he didn't like any of them.

i don't know if he's kidding or not, but i like what msweet wrote and pretty much agree with it. i tend to root for the sweater over the player except for a rare few exceptions. jamie was never one of those exceptions to me.

Your right. I wont disagree with that. Sure he was the Captain, but at the same time it wasnt just him that gave up. It means more that he gave up, he is the last one that should have given up as captain but the whole team gave up. He could only do so much as one play before he himself said fvck this. He just wasnt the right fit. There isnt anything wrong with that. Perhaps he just isnt Captain material. Who knows....


Personally, its just hard for me to be so negative about a player that gave alot back for a while there. His last 2 years here were not the greatest. Ill give you that. I still dont wish sh!t upon him in Dallas. He was never an out and out dickhead like other players seem to be. He just didnt have the right positive attitude as a Captain should. But again....who knows? He could have been having personal problems and who ever says they should leave their personal life off the ice is dumb. Its not possible.

That makes more sense to me.

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.


Yeah all we have this season are what ifs but if we ever did start out better to where we were at least still in the race and snuck in the playoffs we'd be this year's Flyers, the team nobody wanted to play with Zach coming back right around playoff time.

I don't entirely disagree with Tri about Brodeur but I think part of why he was so bad early was just shellshock from how unstructured we were as a team (and the other part was his injury).

He's gone, he's a Star now. I don't wish him ill or anything like that (quite the opposite in fact), but beyond that I don't give a rats behind about him or the Stars. Score, don't score, sit, get scratched....it's all background noise I can't be bothered with. No difference between him and Souray now as far as I'm concerned.

Good for Langenbrunner. Glad he is doing well and fitting in. Langenbrunner is a good player, Dallas definitley won on this trade.


How can you possibly say that at this point?

Good for Langenbrunner playing in his 1000th game and was lucky enough to score a PPG in that game. He has really done nothing in Dallas until that game so its the same old same old with him just in a different location. I could careless what he does now that he is gone from the Devils. Wish him well but it is time to move on now from him. He had his good years here and now its over. I never hated Langs. Met and talked to him many times and to me was a good guy. Just moving on now and need to follow and worry about the players on this Devils team.

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'm sorry, I know you're a mod, but you got a lot of balls.
You start a caustic thread calling a former Devils player a "LOWLIFE", with no other apparent content other than to bash the guy
..... and then you hide behind the hammer and chastise those who get upset and want to call you out for leading this pointless charge?
People talk about agendas here .... I mean where did you honestly expect this to go?
There's something wrong with that.

He smiled after a goal - yeah what a dick - if he didn't smile the thread would be about how he still doesn't care.

How many more times must the ignorant faction of this board pin this season on Jamie f-ing Langenbrunner?
I mean someone actually posted they WANT Lemaire back for next season! I mean, yes, he seems to have restored stability - but you did see last year's playoffs right?

Nothing says class like going out of your way to bash ex-Devil players (those who WANTED to stay - not Gomez) nightly.

I can't get over how many here can't get past this.

Yeah, he wanted to stay and continue whatever bullsh!t sloth crusade he was on. If Langenbrunner (and Rolston, and all our other over-paid under-achievers) want to stay, they have to show it on the ice. That's the way capitalism works. But you live in the People's Republic of Los Angeles (as do I), so I can excuse you for not understanding.

No one's dancing on his grave, nor wishing him violent contagious herpes infections, or anything else, we're simply saying we're glad he's not our problem anymore. msweet's comment about the smirk wasn't about bashing him for scoring a goal for his new team, it was about how it reminded him of what a smarmy douche our ex-Captain had the propensity to be.
