But anyway, the reason I commented on your post is that when I first saw it I read Briere + (Peter) Forsberg for Kuznetsov, and thought you were joking. Then I did a double take and saw Briere for Kuznetsov and Forsberg and still thought you were joking, so I thought this would be somewhat less lopsided. I mean, alright, you can have Washington throw another guy in if you think what I'd go for is unacceptable to you.
I was joking. All I'd really want would be a first + D prospect for briere

And Giroux is definitely a top 5 c

Crosby
Malkin
Stamkos
Giroux
Tavares
