Letting Briere go hurts, they should have signed him 5/25 but that's typical Buffalo for you, only we could mess up something so easy and trivial.
The talk about McKee getting a home-town discount on a reasonable extension but with him being the player rep for the PA had him on the outs with Quinn. Quinn wanted him gone and Jay didn't want to leave. They didn't work out the extension prior to UFA.

Drury over Briere was Quinn, as was them not budging from 3 years/$15 million as their top offer. Larry was upset by the arbitration and didn't think Briere key to the team's success, that "his" guy was more important.
