The Philadelphia Flyers recently made a trade with the Los Angeles Kings to bring back Simon Gagne and might not be done making deals just yet, considering that the Boston Bruins have apparently shown some interest in trying to acquire Danny Briere.
On Feb. 27, the Philadelphia Daily News' Frank Seravalli reported that the Bruins and the St. Louis Blues, along with unnamed other teams, were looking into the idea of bringing in Briere. But despite the interest from various clubs, Briere is very unlikely to be traded.
First of all, he has a no-trade and no-movement clause that prevents him from being traded to other teams and from being sent to the AHL without his permission. Second of all, he has been with the Flyers since the 2007-08 season and flatly denied the idea that he might want to go elsewhere.
"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," he said.
If the Bruins truly are looking to make a trade with Philadelphia, Briere has just made it pretty clear that they'll need to look elsewhere on the lineup.
