I wonder if Elias would waive his NTC.

I hate you.

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.

agreed, but did we not do this with Elias? or was it Nieds ?

That just gives him more options for benchings...

Slightly off-topic: But quintessential Lemaire from last season in a game when Bergfors scored two goals for the Devils... he's asked after the game, "How did you like Bergfors' game tonight?" and he responds, "I liked two shifts. Not counting the goals." Bergie, meet Lou's suite with food & a view of the ice. Next up, Tedenby.

Anyway. Back to the chaos.

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

The way this season went this had to happen with Langenbrunner. This move has to be the first of a long series of movies where Lou gets it right. He's hasn't made a good trade since the Friesen for Sykora trade.

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.

thats what LL said. we're going to find out what kind of team we are.

Via Twitter: Dallas_Dave Langenbrunner to LA for either a pick or a prospect, I'm told. Could be Voynov, but too early to get into specifics. D-day deal likely.

I don't want it to happen. Just speculating.

Elias has been our best player this year by far and I love the guy.

At his worst, he was a glorified past-his-prime 3rd line winger with declining talents and an annoying attitude. His blatant penalties and "who, me?" reactions to those penalties pissed me off. His well-documented sh!t-fit was embarrassing as a fan of the player and the team. But, at his best, he was a 25-goal scorer with leadership and talent. He was no small factor in our cup in 2003, behind Freeze I think he was our best forward that cup run. I loved seeing him lead the ZZPops line, chasing the 30 goal season under Sutter. I'll miss the 07-08 langs, not this years' Langs. He used to be a hell of a hockey player. I'll still wear my Langenbrunner jersey to games with pride, but it was pretty clear that his time was up.

This idea was floating around last night, the LA-for-prospect trade.

When Stevens went out for the year, we gave the C to Nieds. Elias got the C before the year started.

We'll find out if his time was up, but his time with the Devils was clearly up. I'm with Manta and I think he's going to be a solid asset for a contender.

greene is worth more than langenbrunner or arnott.

Unlikely as he's been horrible this year. I don't think Lou is going to trade him.

if they think they are getting a top 6 forward, they are sorely mistaken. langenbrunner can be effective as a 3rd liner and PKer.

When you factor in that Greene only makes 750k, it increases his value significantly.

That's what I meant, his time in jersey was clearly up. I don't know if he can be an asset, but playing with cup-contender talent won't hurt-- that's for sure.

Read other sites - its been everywhere.

At least try to date reference the Twitter post if its older - rather than just throwing it up - its confusing some folks.

... and everyone is at the trigger with a situation like this.

Not when you are a terrible defenseman who is overrated as a puck-mover. He's a 3rd-pairing defenseman.

Its apparently going around that he waived his NTC, was told he was going and to pack his stuff, but is still waiting to hear where he is going.

Why would LL hold info out on that? That the deal is just about complete but isnt there yet?

Re: The Langs trade talk ...

TSNBobMcKenzie Teams said to be most interested and locales he's likely to waive for include Dallas, St. Louis and San Jose. Stay tuned.

...dude, you're re-capping stuff that's been mentioned and quoted several times. Just go easy until new info pops up. Which, in this case, will probably be only when it's confirmed he's been traded, then again to the team, then we wait for the conflicting reports of what's involved (see: Kovalchuk deal involving Clarkson, Palmieri, Josefson, Cormier).

Do you really think they (meaning the Devils) say anything about a deal that wasnt done yet? My guess is that there is a preliminary deal done.

Its not a conspiracy, its good business practice. He may also be trying to get a better deal for us by playing teams against each other in the bidding.
