I'm not sure how he compares to other players in the amount of shots he takes per minutes played - but he seems to just shoot the puck all the time. It helps that he has a great shot of course. Some guys just want to skate around and then pass. Briere isn't like a Voracek or Kovalchuk who can stickhandle and protect the puck using his size and strength. He senses pressure and when in doubt - he shoots. Just like Sunday's game - he had the puck for a split second and he shot it - game over. Seems like he shoots even more in the playoffs.

Does he have much of a curve on his blade? Seems like he doesn't and keeps his shot low. Too many guys (Jeff Carter) always try to pick the corners and just miss. Briere seems to always put it on net. Who said "make the goalie make the save" - words to live by.
