Jamie Langenbrunner has likely played his final game as captain of the New Jersey Devils, and according to several reports, the Flyers are one of the teams that are interested in acquiring the services of the 35-year-old former Cup winner.

We chatted earlier today about the Flyers and their desire to improve the club at the trade deadline. We discussed Peter Laviolette's mistrust of Nikolay Zherdev and the report that said the Flyers hope to improve themselves at right wing. Well, guess what position Langenbrunner plays?

Ah, yes. Right wing. Could we see a deal involving Langenbrunner and Zherdev? That would be premature speculation at this point, but piecing together all the evidence we have at our disposal right now, we'd be remiss without mentioning the possibility. It would make more sense for the Devils to ask for a draft pick, however, considering they're terrible at hockey and appear to be in need of that sort of help. 

For the record, the Flyers currently possess a 1st round pick (believe it or not), Pittsburgh's 3rd, a 4th, a 5th, 6th and 7th in the 2011 draft. They have all but their 2nd rounder in 2012, which they traded to Tampa for Andrej Meszaros.

He's in the final year of a contract that sees him earn $2.8 million this season, and he obviously has a ton of experience in winning. He's having a tough year so far this year, but he's on the Devils, so we can't read that much into that.

Jamie Langenbrunner, the Flyer? How would that make you feel?
