Not that he'll get either, but this is interesting stuff.

Honestly, I'd take Cole+.
You wouldn't even get Cole. Not for Briere.

I don't understand why Flyers fans think Briere has so much value that they can get a 1st and a prospect or a good young roster player plus more.

He is 36 next year, his production has dropped off from 1st to 2nd line production, he plays on the wing nowadays, his cap hit is horrible though the actual money isn't bad.

His only real positive is that he was a great playoff performer in the past. Can we continue to bank on that as his skills deteriorate?

I'd feel happy to get a 2nd and out from under his cap hit.

If the Blues were trading Andy McDonald, a very similar player, I wouldn't expect a 1st or Ian Cole type youngster.
