BREAKING NEWS: Langenbrunner asked to waive no trade clause, no deal completed

Jamie Langenbrunner may have played his last game as a Devil.

Several media members, including Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record, reported today that Langenbrunner and the Devils have discussed waiving his no-trade clause

Langenbrunner told Gulitti no deal was completed, but he expected to hear something soon.

When asked if he thought he'd played his last game as a Devil, Langenbrunner told Gulitti "It looks like it, but you never know."

The Devils' captain is in the final year of a five-year, $14 million contract he signed on July 1, 2006. The deal includes a full no-trade clause.

Langenbrunner, who was named as the eighth captain in the organization's history on December 5, 2005, has 14 points (four goals, 10 assists) this season. He is closing in on 1,000 career NHL games and has collected 232 goals and 630 assists.

Langenbrunner, a Stanley Cup winner with the Dallas Stars in 1999, came to the Devils from Dallas on March 19, 2002 in a deal in which the Stars acquired Jason Arnott, Randy McKay and the Devils' 2002 first round pick. He won his second Stanley Cup in 2003 with the Devils.

The Devils' captain has a contentious relationship with interim coach Jacques Lemaire. Langenbrunner publicly criticized Lemaire last season when he made him a healthy scratch for an April 3 game against the Carolina Hurricanes. After the season, Langenbrunner criticized Lemaire for mishandling team situations.

Bob McKenzie of The Sporting News tweeted that, if traded, Langenbrunner would like to go to Dallas, St. Louis or San Jose.
