Please forget about trading Briere. He has a NMC, his kids are settled, and he most likely does not want to leave Philadelphia and uproot his family over a rare funk that this team is in.

Also, Briere's +/- is not what he is here for. He is meant to bring us points on the power play, which the recent drought I think is more due to people taking poor shots and having them blocked, which means Briere's wonderful passes which would be assists and possibly goals on rebounds, do not occur. Also, please remember how +/- works, if he is on the ice for a power play goal, he does not receive a + towards his total. So his realistic GF/GA or his positives far outweigh his negatives in my opinion.
