Briere is all class and despite being asked tough questions in that interview, he responded in a way that paints both himself and the Flyers organization in a positive light. There's not a single quote there you could take in context or out of context to try and create some controversy. If you're going to speak to the media and agree to answer questions like this, that's how you have to respond.
Huh? Briere's was worse. He basically said 'Yeah I'm have a crappy year, but that's because I'm pouting because I can't play centre."
The fact is, he can't check the position any better than he can guard a point man as a winger. I hope he finds someone who will play him at centre and make him happy next year. We don't need him at centre and he clearly doesn't want to play wing.
I would have him report fit to play. Then get a documented second opinion that he's healthy. Dress him for a game, but sit him on the bench. Then send him home for the season so he can't get re-injured. Then amnesty him the first second I could. About ten minutes after the last game, if possible, with the paperwork sitting in the fax ready to push 'send.'
