NEWARK, N.J. -- Is there room for Jamie Langenbrunner on the Flyers, a team that seems to have all the pieces it needs already in place to make a Stanley Cup run?
The answer is, “Yes.”
According to club source, the Flyers have a legitimate interest in the 35-year-old right wing, who will become a free agent this summer.
“But a lot of other clubs are just as interested,” the source said.
Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello asked Langenbrunner to waive his no-trade clause. He was a healthy scratch on Thursday night against the Flyers and was not even at Prudential Center, according to media reports.
I'd be up for that as long as the Flyers didn't give up too much.
Among the teams rumored to have interest have been St. Louis, San Jose, Dallas and Colorado. Also, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers are said to have interest, but it remains unclear if Lamoriello would trade Langenbrunner to an Atlantic Division rival—though his contract is up on July 1.
According to a report, the Flyers had offered two draft pick for Langenbrunner, but Lamoriello was said to have a better offer
