Look at what St. Louis is doing in Tampa though. Although most would consider St. Louis to be more skilled, it shows that small guys can still be productive in their older years.

The only big argument against this is that while St. Louis is ~2 years older than Briere, they have pretty much played about the same number of full NHL seasons, so St. Louis has less wear on him at his age than Briere will have. Either way, he may not be worth his cap hit in two years, or even next year, but he could still be a productive player on this team which counts for something.
