Flyers interested in getting Devils' Langenbrunner

NEWARK, N.J. – The Flyers would like to add veteran New Jersey Devils winger Jamie Langenbrunner to their already-deep lineup, The Inquirer has learned.

Langenbrunner, who is in the last year of a $2.8 million contract, was asked to waive his no-trade clause and was not in Thursday’s lineup against the Flyers.

The Flyers have about $3.6 million of acquisition space available – enough room to add Langenbrunner.

Jamie Langenbrunner on verge of being traded by Devils

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello has asked captain Jamie Langenbrunner to waive his no-trade clause and is on the verge of dealing the veteran right winger.

Langenbrunner will not play in tonight’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Sens want to play Let's Make a Deal

A For Sale sign has been hung outside Scotiabank Place, but Bryan Murray can’t find any buyers.

League executives told the Ottawa Sun Tuesday the Senators GM is willing to trade just about anybody — except defenceman Erik Karlsson.

With a five-day break and time to ponder what’s gone wrong after an ugly 5-1 loss to the Maple Leafs Saturday, Murray was unavailable for comment as he was making his way back from the world junior championship in Buffalo.

Langenbrunner on the block

Sources say the Jamie Langenbrunner auction is on in earnest, and the hammer may come down soon if Lou Lamoriello asks the Devils captain to waive his no-trade clause, and Langenbrunner submits.

Those sources say that it may be sooner rather than later before the trades begin in this historic disaster of a Devils season, and that Langenbrunner is the player teams want most.

Commodore asks to be traded, Wilson put on waivers

The Blue Jackets had an off day yesterday, but only in the sense that they did not practice.

While players rested bumps and bruises and some fought off lingering effects of the flu, there was a flurry of activity behind the scenes, with more moves, including a trade, possibly coming as soon as today.

Analysis of the #01 Goaltender Market

Here is an Analysis of the current #01 Goaltender market. (This is my first post on HTR, sorry for my English is bad, i do my best)

Everyone can approximate without effort the need for goaltenders in the League.

30 team = 30 spot for #01 goaltender.

But how many goaltender can do the job? Here is the list

I divided the list in 5 categories,

Barring a total collapse, don't expect Stars to trade Brad Richards

Barring a complete collapse in which the Stars will either be out of the playoff picture or on the bubble by Feb. 28, I do not see the Stars trading Brad Richards.

Sens GM scours market for No. 1 goalie

The No. 1 priority for the Senators is simple: Find a No. 1 goalie.

With the club struggling, Pascal Leclaire unable to stay healthy and Brian Elliott unable to do the job, GM Bryan Murray has been combing the trade market for a netminder.

But there aren’t many available.

What If?

Seeing how most of the articles out there have been about trade rumors and how Burke wont pull the trigger on trades I figured I would compile a few random “what if” questions and figured I would ask the public at Hockey Trade Rumors what they would do in the situation. Some of them relate to all teams some of the just a general team so below feel free to put your opinion on what you would do in the situation. Seeing how I know mostly about the Leafs I plan on answering any questions I can from their perspective. Alright lets get the ball rolling….

Picture Perfect Scenario

Lately I’ve been getting very aggravated with the Bruins’ play and the fact that Julien gives ice time to those who s*ck the most. So, in an effort to rid myself of this annoyance and frustration, I worte this down. I would’ve posted this on a Bruins Board, but none of those idiots listen to me. so, in any case, here goes:

Phillips taking wait-and-see approach

A little less than four years ago, Chris Phillips felt the same uncertainty.

His contract was expiring and he didn’t know whether the Ottawa Senators wanted him or could even afford him. So he thought there was a chance they might trade him at the deadline to get something before he left town.

Sami Salo's worry? ‘Can I still play?’

Long-term injured blueliner says he would retire before risking permanent damage by returning prematurely

We interrupt the growing debate over how the Vancouver Canucks will fit defenceman Sami Salo on to their roster and who should be traded to clear salary-cap space, with a basic yet paramount detail: for Salo, his return is still as much about “if” as “when.”

Could Islanders claim Leighton?

Heading into last night’s action, less than 8 hours into Michael Leighton’s brief purgatory on the NHL’s waiver wire for the fifth time in his career, it looked like Leighton would end today unclaimed with the Flyers sending him to Adirondack for some long-term seasoning.
