I have no clue why Briere to Boston is even being discussed... Boston doesn't need Briere, especially with that cap hit. He has it for two more seasons after this. I see maybe a talbot or Feds being moved to the Bruins, and for not that much coming in return. I actually could see Talbot getting a pretty nice return just because he is locked up at a reasonable price for 3 more years after this actually.

Also about Briere getting traded depends a whole lot on the team trying to get him. I see a budget team( St Louis, Anahiem, Nashville) as teams that would be willing to surrender a 1st rounder for him because of his actual salary compared to cap hit. I don't really see a team like Boston, Vancouver, Chicago being choices just because of the contract. Detroit could be a sleeper team interested in Briere come the deadline if the Flyers are out of it I think.
