Exactly.

People can complain all they want about Briere's performance last year, but how many different linemates were used with Danny? He didn't perform well last year because he had 13 different linemates throughout the year. Nobody would perform with those kinds of changes being made to your line.

As for this year, he's legitimately injured. You can be in the best of shape and suffer from groin injuries. What's worse was that sports hernia he had. He came back too soon from it and we're seeing it now. Briere should have taken the required 4 to 6 weeks off to let it heal and then start working his way back into the lineup.

Hopefully the Flyers medical staff do right this time and take their time with Danny.
