You mention later they want young players, JVR fits the bill, but you choose to neglect his inclusion in this comment.

Perhaps that was rude...maybe I should ask it more like: "What the hell would be the point of trading Lehtonen for picks?". Maybe that is more polite. The value of picks this year are not higher than the value of JVR, but you don't even address that. You just post an opinion that Briere couldn't help them make the playoffs, and scoff at the idea of a trade as if I am an idiot. Pardon me if my tone deteriorates slightly.

ATL fans, who know their team better than I do, are saying the team has more pressing needs. Fair enough, but the idea that Briere is useless that seems to be popular on these boards is just ridiculous.

Briere could HELP Atlanta, possibly enough to earn a playoff spot *gasp*. That is what I said. We disagree here and that is fine.
