Briere is not the problem here. Until this team learns how to play defensively, we are going to allow extremely high amounts of goals and that's not going to change with or without Briere.
Because our goaltending has dropped by 10 pts in SVPCT...been a big factor.
And team defense, and the style of defensive hockey we play is certainly an issue. It isn't helped that we have some guys looking like young D back there. The Coburn-Carle pairing makes me nervous every time they're out there. For every really good play they make, they also do something silly.
What I wouldn't give for a Weinrich like player on this team...if we had the cap room (which we won't), this team could really use a veteran steady D for the top 4.
