Default Red Wings acquire Lang


2/27/2004

The Red Wings have done it again. Detroit has acquired centre Robert Lang from the Washington Capitals for prospect Tomas Fleischmann, a first round pick in 2004 and a fourth round pick in 2006.

Awesome! This is someone who I have wanted to see in a Wings jersey for quite some time. He's tied with Martin St. Louis for most points in the NHL and he'll fit in quite nicely on one of our top lines.

I can honestly say the thing I dislike most about hockey are the fire sales. The rich get richer the poor get dratfpicks. If I were a hockey fan in Washington...I'd be no more!....

Thats the way it works in baseball too. The Pirates traded even their average players in July of last year.

Good trade for the Wings. They add a solid center who is putting up a big season and will only help them come play off time. The Red Wings are like the Yankees of hockey.

Hah.

Well I'm just going to assume that the speculations regarding Gonchar going to the Avs are now founded.

7 more days till the end of the trade deadline. We shall see.
