He has no shot to speak of, and gives us absolutely nothing when we don't have the puck.

At least Briere can skate, pass, and shoot proficiently. Briere had many seasons of success before getting a big contract. Giving Simmonds this deal is as bad as giving JVR his deal. Too early, and not enough production to warrant the years or $$.
1) Simmonds is one of our faster skaters.
2) He can play on the wall.
