Again, I want to be careful with him, I think we all do here, not to put him in a spot before he's ready to handle it. So it's an interesting [and] big summer for James in terms of his conditioning and his mindset, and I think we'll have a real good idea at training camp on how he fairs. I think it's safe to say that he'll play some preseason games for us and see how he fits in, but he's a big, strapping young man that's still developing physically. But he's got an excellent hockey sense, he's got excellent abilities, and he gets around the ice very well for a big, young man."

Take it or leave it, but Briere trade or not, JVR is staying in Philadelphia.
