I agree with Larry, Briere should be moved back to wing. He is too small and limited defensively to be playing center in the eastern conference on a long time basis.
I disagree that Briere had a horrible season playing wing in 09-10. First of all, he had 27 goals and 50+ points so his season wasn't that bad, and second, he was going through a divorce which probably had much more to do with his playing being a little bit down than anything else. I also think Briere's success moving back to center int he playoffs had more to do with having the right guy to play with in Leino than where he was playing. Briere plays his best when he has a purely skilled playmaker with him and when he played win that season Carter wasn't that guy for him.
