Sketchy on Briere. He's been racking up more injuries than points lately. Guy is a playoff killer though.
Yeah, if we want to ice a "Chicago"-type of line up, he really makes alot of pieces on this team add up so to speak (talk about a perfect fit for Zucc; he is still very good on the PP; he got a good shot, would have the best shot on the team; he is great on FO's; he has won a cup; he got size and is strong at center ice; he can PK etc etc etc).
Lecavalier isn't a franchise center anymore because he doesn't have the agility to go up against the very best players/shut down players. If you get the puck behind him, he is not good at getting it up ice. He wasn't good at that when he won scoring title either, and its not getting per year.
But if we can get him to sign for like 5m per for 2 years, he could definitely help out alot. The expectations on him would be more like on Shanny than on BR/Gomez/Drury.
