In addition, he set a career high in points with 95. However in the playoffs the Sabres would fall short of their ultimate goal, losing out to the Ottawa Senators in the Eastern Conference Finals.

In the summer of 2007, Briere's tenure with the Sabres would come to an end as the speedy forward was signed eight-year contract with the Philadelphia Flyers.

On the international stage, Briere has helped Canada capture gold at the 1997 World Junior Championships and both the 2003 and 2004 World Championships.
