One of the teams expected to be most active leading up to the trade deadline is the Philadelphia Flyers, who made a deal Tuesday. The Flyers brought Simon Gagne back from Los Angeles in exchange for a conditional draft pick.
They aren’t done yet, either, but a potential move involving forward Danny Briere may not be as easy as general manager Paul Holmgren would like. Philly.com reports that Briere is unlikely to waive his full no-movement clause.
“I don’t want to comment on anything at this point,” Briere told the Daily News. ”Trades are not my department. I’ve been a Flyer for a long time. My heart belongs in Philadelphia with the Flyers. I can’t see myself playing anywhere else.”
According to the report, the Bruins are among the teams interested in the 35-year-old.
The St. Louis Blues seem to really be interested in Briere, too. St. Louis general manager Doug Armstrong has reportedly seen the Flyers in person a few times in the last couple of weeks.
Yet it doesn’t sound like anything is going to happen until Briere changes his mind regarding his non-movement clause, which doesn’t sound likely at this point.
