Yeah, and who wanted Eric Belanger for 750K? And Malhotra the year before that? Ah well.
Briere blows ass defensively, much worse than Giroux, my main hope is that he can score enough at C to slightly mitigate that, he did lead the league in ES points a few years back.
The other issue is that for a variety of reasons, Giroux projects long-term to be a wing. So I mean, the longer we keep ****ing around with him at C, the longer we delay that permanent move so that he can get settled.
I disagree with Garbage Goal though, that Hartnell-Briere-Leino line had some kind of weird chemistry that seemed to work whereas Giroux's success in the POs was just the kid stepping up big-time rather than any big-time chemistry with other players. So I would rather put Briere at C for now at least.
