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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

D-day, as in...trade deadline? How could that make any sense
