It's one thing to say, "Let's give Brisebois a break, it's a new year, stop the booing" and to chastise every reporter or fan who has criticized the guy. He has deserved the criticism that has gone his way. It may have been a little too thick, and maybe Rivet deserves his share too, but he still deserves to hear it from the fans if he's not putting in the effort.
The fans in Quebec know the story with this guy and his front office connnections, being out of shape, waiving trades, pretending to play tough, the whole deal.
I don't boo players myself, but I have no problem with the fans booing him if he deserves it. It lets management know that we won't put up with lack of effort either in the weight room or on the ice.
But he become a symbol for the decline of the whole team, and that is wrong. The contract is Savard's fault too, not Brisebois' fault.
Gainey is right, Brisebois is not to blame for the decline of the team and he deserves to be left alone so he can put his game back together.
