I like Briere, but it makes tons of sense to move him so we can re-allocate his salary elswhere (probably defense or goalie). The fact of the matter is he provides something we are already incredibly strong in due to the development of Carter and Richards; offensive dynamo centerman who excels on the PP. When we signed him, he was exactly what we needed. Nobody saw Richards blowing up into what he is, and Carter hitting his potential so suddenly.

I disagree when people keep immediately shooting down "trade Briere" ideas due to the NMC. Yes, it's a hurdle but some of you act like it's this immovable object. There are probably other places in North America Briere likes, probably other teams, and probably other players. Places where he would see more ice time as well. Things could even turn ugly here and he could be run out of town. Nobody is going to stay in a place where they aren't wanted; he would waive it if it made sense for him.
