Right now there's a lot of sour taste from Jamie's last few playoff performances and from this season, obviously. So I don't feel much sadness because of him leaving at the moment - changes need to be made and it has to touch the bigger names, not just Andy Greenes and Ilka Pikkarainens. But I'm sure when it's all said and done, when the season ends and we get a lot of time to reflect on things, I'm going to remember the best memories about Jamie. We just have to move on now. Just like with Gio, Madden and a bunch of other guys. I'll always remember them as Devils and will root for them to win (assuming they don't end up on the Rangers ;) or aren't playing us on the particular night).

I really have no idea what to expect from that trade in terms of return (especially that we don't know which team is getting him). Hopefully I get to know soon, it better not turn into a soap opera.

I think Langenbrunner is going back to the Stars as well. Most likely announced in the morning. Why wait till the afternoon when most likely tonight it is a done deal to the Stars. Have to wait and see.

Alright so now we know he will be going to someone other than the Stars and it will be announced tomorrow. :P

Whatever sour taste I have from Langenbrunner comes mostly from his admission that he had trouble getting excited for the playoffs. On one hand, we tend to forget that players are human beings, flawed just like the rest of us, and I'm sure it had reached the point that the playoffs had become a formality for many of the Devil players...just like it had for many of the fans. But to actually hear a player (the captain) admit that...at that point, I thought he had to go, especially coming off a players series that had seen the Devils look slow and overwhelmed yet again.

I agree, I don't really feel sad...more like it's time to move on and realize it's over for guys like him...at least it is here. Like you said, I'll remember the good with Jamie.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

dallas probably won't even make the playoffs, so it will be nice that jamie won't even have to go through that

dallas has a few intriguing B and C level prospects. i'd also love wandell and a draft pick but i don't see that happening.

I don't care where he goes. If the Flyers or Rangers offered the best return, then he should go there.

LOL. Wow, when did the NHL change the format in the West that only two teams make it to the playoffs???

I know your pretty limited in terms of your knowledge of the game, but FYI: Dallas is the 5th best team in the entire NHL right now. Highly unlikely they don't make the playoffs

It's not over for Jamie. Any sort of disillusionment is a two-way in this case - so I don't feel so badly either. Both sides seem to be very much on the same disappointed page. Madden was annoying because he was so defensive about it all - we're not happy with each other but it's all your fault.

Langs seems to feel at the heart of it that it's just how it is and neither side is going to do anything to change anything so -- it's pretty much done. OR... it can float along like this with each side keeping their passionless end of the bargain up.

My biggest worry is that Lou is bluffing to get teams interested and that his bluff yet again is being called - no takers and Jamie has to come back to the team with a HUGE "we're so fvcked for the next decade" sign on his chest.

How Lou responds will tell me if he's lost it or not. His balls are indeed seeming more and more like they are made of flesh and blood not the titanium I had supposed.

After all of this, if Langenbrunner has to come back and play for us after being asked to waive his no trade clause and being scratched (with Rolston also in the same lineup after being waived twice) Lou should just be given his pinkslip and maybe we can get someone in here who can start to turn this thing around.

Most teams know we have to deal him, if we get more than a 2nd round pick I would be surprised.

Hugely? Really? They are only 6 points ahead of the 9th place team and only 7 ahead of the 12th place tean. It is likely that Dallas makes the playoffs but I would not be surprised if they didn't.

i'm aware of where they are in the standings. i'm also aware that they are not a very good team.

Most teams know we have to deal him, if we get more than a 2nd round pick I would be surprised.


i suggest reading up on 'supply and demand'.

Hopfully Joe owes Lou a favor and we steal Jamie Benn.

Pipe dream I know. It's likely gonna be for a pick I think.


No way!

But Mike Heika's reporting that he thinks it's a done deal - Langs for conditional draft picks. Here's the link

"He has no ego," says Lou Lamoriello, general manager of the New Jersey Devils. "I don't think he has a selfish bone in his body. It gets infectious with people around him, but that's Joe. Having him here was something very special."
------------------------------------------------------------------------
And the simple truth is this -- before and after Joe Nieuwendyk, this franchise has not been as good. Yes the same could be said for others, but Nieuwendyk's effect on his team, on his team's best players, on the fans and in the community can only be compared to, well, what Jarome Iginla is doing now in Calgary.

There's where I disagree. If we lose jamie and get sh!t in return THEN we have a problem. If we're getting deep dicked here I'd prefer we get fictional on the NHLs ass.

A third rounder for Jamie? Really? how bout you go fvck yourself? This team does not need the cooperation of the league. fvck the league!!

Then Lou has to say something. I'm not sure the best way to say it -- maybe even just an off handed joke? There is clearly collusion, you wanna say conspiracy? sure! Against the Devils. Payback for shoving Mickey mouse so far down the Gretzky contingencies throat they all nearly choked to death.

It's not the players - it's the game. and this team has gotten away from the game. getting rid of Jamie for a song is just playing into their hands too far. If it's taking this long then we have a problem and Lou knows it and if Jamie comes back - then Lou has NOT lost his nerve and the team and fans need to understand a message was sent to this team and response is necessary. After the kovalchuk nonsense it can't get any louder.

The league wants Lou out. i am not one to sit by and let that happen.
