Briere would be a better fit on NYI than he would be in Philly. I'm not saying he should be a #1 choice. But he should be an option if Ryder/Horton go elsewhere. And, frankly, I'm not even enamored by Horton.

And he's much friggin' better than Brad Boyes. Even at his age.
Yes I know all about his personal issues, divorce and other things but I have to say other then little injuries to the defense, they were not decimated til recently and what does he have to do with the defense anyway. He was even taken off the 2nd PP unit before his concussion. Also defensively Briere is not only a liability but he makes brutal bruno look like Ray Bourque in the defensive zone.
I would take Horton,Ryder, Briere and Boyes in that order but with the cap coming way down some teams will need to shed decent players under market.
