His influence in the locker room as well as helping guys like Giroux and Couturier adapt and thrive in Philadelphia can't be under estimated. There's a reason why Holmgren moved Richards and Carter last summer and kept Briere.
People want briere gone because he has been one of our worst forwards...and thats epic considering his point totals....if he was a +5 or so....but he's like a -5 with 13 pts for....that's flat out embarrassing.

And the kids don't have to move. DB can afford a nanny...if the franchise wants him gone...he will's how bad does it have to get...
