Briere could be pegged for RW.

Although he was back playing close to full strength by the playoffs, Briere wants to be 100 percent by the time training camp opens on Sept. 12.

"I feel great," Briere said Tuesday. "I'm starting to feel strong again. I'm trying to find that explosion that I used to have two years ago. Health-wise, I feel great, and I'm ready for a big year."

There's a good chance Briere will be moved from center to right wing this season. The trade of Joffrey Lupul (in the Chris Pronger deal) and the loss of Mike Knuble to free agency opens up the right side considerably.

If Briere were to play with a speedster like center Claude Giroux, it would be imperative to have complete mobility again.

"I feel like I'm getting in better and better shape," Briere said. "I don't want to peak too early, but I want to be ready for the season, and at this point I'm very healthy and I feel great."
