Langenbrunner to Dallas. 3rd round conditional pick coming back

I'd have to imagine Lou got some sort of prospect in this trade. I'm not expecting an elite prospect obviously, but an intriguing one is possible.

What were they supposed to do? They had to deal him eventually.

Very true. But I would have liked to remain optimistic about the future for this organization.

Єklund (2.3% accurate) claims Langs to Dallas. Take it for what it's worth, I'm scratching Dallas off the list of trade partners.

I fully expect Langenbrunner to be rejuvenated on a playoff contender. That's not saying he's going to turn into Gordie Howe, but on the right team with the right linemates and right use by the coach, he could be a valued addition.

There's a lot of teams out West who could use him on their PK unit.

C'mon man. We're trading away dead weight. Langs clearly hasn't been happy with the organization, likely wouldn't have re-signed in the offseason, and is an aging player that doesn't bring anything to the table for the Devils *this year*. We'll get a draft pick or a prospect in return, how doesn't that up your optimism about our future?

LOL. I know you don't really understand the game, but this is no longer a team. It has been a fractured group of individuals going on a year now.

Langs will be a great addition to any contending Team. Watch and learn.

You're right that Langs will be an asset to a contender. However, the Devils are not a contender and the season is lost. He is an unrestricted FA and this team needs to get some kind of return before he walks. The season is lost at this point. Might as well get some pick or prospect for him.

Dallas seems likely to me. He had to approve his destination, correct? Id guess Dallas would most certainly be his first choice, if i were a betting man

weren't we a contending team at one point last year? what happened then? the whole boat sank a year ago and langs went with it. he'll be an addition to a contending team by some stretch but absolutely did nothing for us. he turned into a cancer and needed to go.

He turned into a "cancer" when he tried to express the team's lack of faith in coaching direction (constantly changing lines, and punishing the younger players). The team eventually tuned JL out last year and now he is back.

How does keeping Jamie Langenbrunner provide optimism?

You make it sound like hes some sort of glue/lynchpin to hope, when hes been terrible for a good while.

Regardless, Jamie's gotten slower and less productive - he's an older player - and he's UFa. So business-wise its the absolute right move.

The disrespect in this thread is astounding - "A cancer" - Dion Phaneuf was "a cancer" - come on!

Some of the folks here are making him the sacrificial lamb for all that has gone wrong since 2004 - well the ship should be righted now then right?

For one bad playoff season this guy had many years of good ones and some great ones.

HE bled Red and Black for this team - and his blood helped earn you a 3rd cup.

YEs, his time has come.

I wish folks could show a little respect on his way out - thats all.

Langenbrunner was a always a hard working NJ Devil.

again langenbrunner has been scoring a 4th line rate while being given top 6 minutes. he's done a lot for this organization but his time has clearly run out.

Your right. But I just hate to see it as he and Parise had great chemistry.

I am sad to see Langs go but in the end its better for the team. I say Zajac gets the C but im willing to bet Kovie gets it which would be a shame since hes a nooby to the team.

You hit the nail on the head. Thanks for expressing what I could not.

OK.

But didn't Patty Elias openly express to the media his questioning of JL's coaching line changes just today?

I don't think its one player - its all the vets.

Via Twitter: Ledger_NJDevils It appears Jamie Langenbrunner is not playing tonight for the Devils. There is no equipment in his locker stall. A possible trade?

Langs took the brunt for talking on behalf of the team last year. Patty is taking it public. Eitherway, this isn't a good sign for a traditional contender.

I say don't give anyone the C right now. Go with three A's, and give it to Parise next season when (not if) he re-signs.

Well look on the bright side: at the rate we're going we'll wind up trading away or waiving just about all the vets so that Jacques will be forced to play the kids.

I wonder if Elias would waive his NTC.

Arnott pretty much straight up asked for a trade when he was interviewed the other night.

I think Andy Greene is probably a goner too, although the most we would get there is a 4th or 5th rounder probably.

That just gives him more options for benchings...

Always figured the leading candidates to take Langenbrunner were Dallas and Colorado. Connections in Dallas, obviously, and Colorado is young with tons of cap space. He wouldn't be relied on in a serious scoring role in either situation, but would just be a hard worker whose production would be a bonus.
