But the point remains, the Flyers are willing to sacrifice defense from their center when Briere is on the ice. Probably why you've been seeing Talbot with him recently because he's the one who thinks about that kind of stuff (defense).
Honestly, I think in the offseason it's probably time for Briere to go. Hopefully w/ the kids on summer break from school, etc. we can find a location for Danny to be moved to.

I really like Danny, but he's kind of a square peg and this team is a round hole at the moment. We have Schenn and Couturier ready to take over @ center and Danny doesn't play very well on the wing.
