Or Ilya Kovalchuk, a much better play than Briere.
Still doesn't fill our gap at center though..

I'm not a huge fan of Briere, but should an offer come on the table and the Price is right.. We need to consider it, because he is still a huge upgrade over a Koivu (at this stage of his career) or Plekanec (little girl v2.0).
