Briere has a high cap hit, and a low cash outlay. Tailor made for a budget team.
I don't know how a d-man like Timonen wouldn't be valuable for a team who wants him for 2 playoffs. Matt Carle just got that money over 6 years and while younger, he's not 1/2 the defenseman Timonen is.
Neither gets you a king's ransom, but they would certainly be popular at the deadline.
