If we're going to play around this things, and we're wary of Voracek's finishing, I think I'd prefer to give Schenn a shot at G's wing over Briere.
The most important forward in the defensive zone is the center, which was why Briere was a defensive liability, but on the wing, it would be less of an issue imo. And Jagr wasn't that great defensively either. And Schenn is not as offensively good as Briere yet, Briere used to be one of our bests offensive players (in 2010-11 he was imo) and still is in the playoffs. I think it would be worth the try.
