Devils have scheduled 10:30 a.m. conference call. At this point, my info (like others) is that Langenbrunner has been traded to Dallas.
As I reported yesterday, the talk all day yesterday was Langenbrunner was headed to Dallas although he has full control of where he would be traded with a NTC.

I am hearing NJD are getting a third-round pick for Langenbrunner from DAL, but there may be some conditional elements to it as well.
Frisco, Tex. – Dallas Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk announced today that the NHL club has acquired right wing Jamie Langenbrunner from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a conditional third round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
Langenbrunner, 35, is returning to the Stars – the team that he was drafted by (1993 second round, 35th overall) and played the first six and a half NHL seasons with (1995-2002). Now in his 14th NHL season, he has appeared in 996 career games, scoring 232 goals and 388 assists for 620 points and 776 penalty minutes. A two-time Stanley Cup Champion (Dallas 1999, New Jersey 2003), Langenbrunner’s four career playoff overtime goals are tied-for-first (also Chris Drury) among active players.
“We are very excited to add Jamie to our team,” said Nieuwendyk. “He fits the mold of the type of players we want on this roster – strong work ethic, tough, passionate, and hard to play against. All of our fans got to see first-hand what kind of a player Jamie is when he broke into the league in the nineties and was part of our Stanley Cup team in 1999. We are thrilled to be able to bring him back to Dallas.”
