12:49 PM ET 02.27 | With teams reportedly calling about a possible trade for Flyers forward Danny Briere, the veteran has stated he's not interested in moving. "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." Briere has a full no-movement clause and still a few years left on a contract that houses a $6.5 million cap hit which the Flyers would likely be happy to move along; convincing Briere to allow that to happen is something else entirely.

Danny wants to stay because his old drinking buddy Gagne is coming back.

Ok got to pace myself here since this will be my first comment about 1 of the 2 teams I feel are the most vile, dog poo, cry cause I want to, Satans best friends who may or may not actually be the cause of global warming, I offer the following on Briere. Over the final 2 years of his contract he is owed 3M and 2M which by any measure is a great great price for what he brings. But his 6.5M cap hit those 2 years is the 22Ton Gorilla in the room, would a team out there take him?? Yes, and look it could even be a team like my Caps (My kids would still be forbidden from saying his name in the house) but more than likely this is just not goingto happen becuase I imagine the asking price would be way way over the top. I am guessing in the 1st rounder 2 prospects and a 3rd liner at the least.

I don't want to even ask about the other team you reference here. ;)

I would imagine they are the cause of anything and everything else unholy and vile.

If a trade looks possible Danny, ask Phantom to intercede for you. A more loyal, devoted Flyer fan I don't know. And yes, he does have some good qualities too!

I stated in another post that I have followed reading most of the past 3 years and that includes you Pensfan (I actually lived in the "Burgh" for 6 months) but over the past 10 years of my hockey life there are a list of fans that I have just not gotten along with: 1. Flyers 2. Pitt 3. Buffalo which yes all teams have those fans that just make you ill but for some reason those 3 do it for me, but hey being a diehard Caps fan I must say Crosby probably has the best eye hands cord in the game and there are a few of my beloved Caps I would trade for Tyler Kennedy I like his game (looking at you Fehr) but i look forward to lively banter with those I ahve come to respect through thier post such as yourself. As far as Briere goes, his Cap hit is stil 6.5M which makes him worse than untouchable in my eyes :)

I wish I had even a fraction of understanding of what's going on in Philly these days.

Hartnell and Meszaros out for most of the season and no one as good as Jagr in terms of playmaking for Giroux.

They are hanging around and only 7 points from the top of the division, so with any luck injured players come back and the team starts to click at the right time.
