Wade Redden isn't ready to let the Senators show him the way to San Jose.

The Senators defenceman told Sun Media last night he's not going to waive his "no movement" clause before the Feb. 26 NHL trade deadline. League sources say Redden's stance has left a deal to send him to the Sharks defenceman Matt Carle and a draft pick dead.

Redden, who is making $6.5 million US this season and will be a UFA on July 1, confirmed he met with Senators general manager Bryan Murray yesterday and a potential move was amongst the topics discussed.

But, this isn't the first time the Senators have asked Redden to waive the clause. A similar request was made last summer when the Edmonton Oilers were interested and Redden blocked the move then.

"I really have the same thing to say that I said the last time: I signed a two-year deal with Ottawa because I want to win a Stanley Cup with this team," Redden said.

LUPUL TO MAKE EARLY RETURN

Philadelphia Flyers right wing Joffrey Lupul, sidelined since Jan. 5 with a spinal cord contusion, has been cleared to play against the New York Rangers today, five days earlier than expected.

MURRAY BACK WITH BRUINS

Bruins forward Glen Murray returned for Boston's game at Buffalo after missing 19 games with a hip injury.

A seven-time 20-goal-scorer, Murray has been out since being hurt during a 5-4, shootout loss against Pittsburgh on Dec. 20. Murray was playing on the Bruins' top line and had 10 goals and nine assists for 19 points in 34 games before he was hurt.

BRIEFLY

The Montreal Canadiens will be without veteran defenceman Roman Hamrlik for a third straight game because of a viral infection when they face the Senators in Ottawa tonight ... The Phoenix Coyotes called up left winger Pete Vandermeer for their AHL affiliate and signed him to an NHL contract.
