Philadelphia Flyers forward Danny Briere, who has been the subject of recent trade rumours, has no intention of waiving his no-movement clause.

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, the Flyers have received calls from the Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues about Briere.

For his part, the 35-year-old told the Daily News that he has no interest in a trade.

"I don't want to comment on anything at this point," Briere said. "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 five goals and six assists in 17 games this season.  In 108 career playoff games, he has 50 goals and 59 assists.

Briere is under contract until the completion of the 2014-15 season, and has a cap hit of $6.5 million per season.  His contract however could be desirable to some clubs due to its back-loaded nature.  Briere will make $3 million in 2013-14 and $2 million in 2014-15.
