he was in his 3rd pro season at 23, his waiver exemption was done, and he still looked like a kid out there playing with men. It's perfectly understandable that no-one wanted to give him an NHL spot. The weird thing though was that there were two expansion teams in 2000... neither of them wanted to take a flyer on a former first-round pick? Really (though probably lucky for briere, that might've sunk his career for all we know)?
