I think he's been close on a lot of plays and it will come before too long. Briere is capable of much more but also in a funk. These are very good hockey players. I don't think they've "lost it" or anything...I still think they might be able to find some better chemistry by exploring new line combos, get Richie away from Gagne, maybe Leino clicks with someone, who knows. But these guys are too talented and well paid to let this kind of thing continue.
I think that's a good assessment too.
Except for that last sentence, whihc I have been hearing here for a couple years. Usually it has been in the context of poor coaching though.
I really think they aren't that good.
