They might, but not likely. You've seen how terrible the Montréal media is. If Montréal acquires Briere they'll be all over Gainey for getting Briere after he declined a bigger contract to sign with the flyers. He'll probably be gone in a year anyways.

Compared to Gomez, or Drury, Briere's contract is good, but with that Montréal would need to acquire someone like Malone, Hartnell, someone who is big, can create room and finish to create some room for Briere so he can be as effective as he can be.
