Canadiens sign Daniel Briere for 2YR/8M (w/NMC) - Part II: Butthurt welcomed
 
We were closing to 1000 posts on the last thread

Not that bad of a deal, but I hope there is more UFA or trade coming our way.

Edit: I feel really dumb. Can a mod add "Part II" to the title?

Pacioretty - DD - Galchenyuk
Bourque - Plekanec - Briere

Prust - Lapierre - White

Gionta on IR.

A lot of emotion on this board right now. Guys that I usually read as being calm are lit up like a damn Christmas tree. Makes for some interesting reading while I'm trying to take a load off in the bathroom right now, but people need to relax. Other moves will probably occur in the next weeks.

Is there a possibility for a compilation ?

It also sucks when a song you use they restrict it to the states only. You had a sweet Subban compilation from a few years ago that was 7 minutes long.

Don't need to, he's popular enough to have his own already up:

May Dreger report that DD has been traded and all will be well.

Im not so mad about getting Briere. I always would have wanted him its just that were already so small.

How exactly does that imply anything about cammalleri? I thought we were comparing DD and briere.

No, you were implying Brière wouldn't be able to put up the same numbers here because he wouldn't have the same physical presence to protect him.

I was making a point that Cammalleri did it just fine.

LyricalLyricist 07-04-2013 09:01 PM

We can only hope he performs to his contract. Anyone living up to his contract is of value and an asset. When time comes we can make necessary moves.

I don't get this deal much but the best I could do is assume that as the season goes on changes will be made and whoever is the weakest link will be traded or packaged for a solid piece.

Briere may have been on Earth 36 years, but he still looks like a teenager.

I think we need to make sure he hits the gym with Subban asap.

This is like a consolation prize for not getting Lecavalier but....meh.

As many have said before this only make sense if DD and or Gionta get replaced by bigger and more physical guys. Otherwise the Habs are still gonna get pushed around again this year.

I'm neutral on this for now so let's hope MB has another trick up his sleeve

One Man Rock Band 07-04-2013 09:02 PM

He was over 35% in the shootout in Philly. I guess that's a positive.

Gaston Therrien loves it. Says 2 years is perfect. And he also says that he's small but he plays big....okay enough....:sarcasm:

Of course you need a plan B and C. But what I'm saying is that he put himself in a bad situation by signing redundancy into the lineup. You can bet your ass that other GMs will raise their price and lower their offers now that he has put himself in that position. As for the free agency, I don't see who he can sign that would make this make sense, and besides it's the same situation where you don't know who will want to sign at the price you want them to. It's a bad position to put yourself in, just like what Gainey did in 09. Gainey was dead set in letting Koivu go but did not have a concrete plan to replace him. He ended up doing a lateral move and paid a premium to do it.

He probably doesn't realize that he was roughly 12 hours after announcing this to de-smurf some of the team before fans start protesting at the bell centre.

So does Desharnais. Doesn't mean he doesn't get thrown around like a ragdoll though. :laugh:

The Habs were "pushed around" to 2nd place in the East last year and just got better + adding a proven playoff performer.

The Habs will be a very good regular season team, but will have to add a few pieces if they want to go deeper in the series.
