its a sick cycle here. hate briere during the offseason, love him in the playoffs.
I've never been one of the people to whom you are referring.

However, it will soon we time to face facts.

1. We have defensively sound centers who we expect to be reaching similar offensive production in the near future.

2. We know that Briere is still effective and can continue to be effective on the wing even if not as productive.

3. We know Briere is getting older.

4. We know Briere makes a lot of money, and we will need a lot of money to re-sign Giroux, Couturier, and BSchenn in the near future.

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $70,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $60,958,611; BONUSES: $2,705,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $11,946,389
The cap next year is 64.30m not 70.20m. Basically we're losing the entirety of cap used to pay Briere right out of the gate.
