I'm well aware. Notice where I said he got suspended and that it was appropriate for that to happen?

I don't see myself making him out to be an angel anywhere in that post. I realized long ago that Briere gets his stick in places it shouldn't be. I'm merely trying to dispel the belief of some that Briere had some sort of sinister plan to take out a guy who had scored a goal. He wanted to hit the guy coming across the middle. With Briere that sometimes includes a stick coming up high and this time it got out of control. Dirty? Yes. Suspension worthy? Yes. Cold hearted killer? Please.
