* Martin Brodeur tells the media he would consider waving his no-trade clause if the Devils aren’t contenders, and wanted to move him to a team with a postseason chance.
* David Desharnais takes his benching in stride, and Michel Terrien battles with P.K. Subban. It doesn’t sound like things are going well in Montreal.
