But over the last 2 playoffs, 12 of Briere's 15 goals came at ES and he was still -13, that is pretty telling of the type of defensive effort he is giving. Oh wait, he had 2 GWG over those 2 seasons...playoff beast.
To quote everyone on here when they don't like what they are seeing...

"But...but...but...+/- is a worthless stat!" (unless it supports my argument)
