The Briere signing was a good signing. He definitely had more good things happen than bad. But lets not forget that the 2010 team also had a an outstanding top 4 defense including a future hall of famer. It also had three players that would go on to win the cup with another team two years later. Richards and Carter were huge players for us and the Kings. In 2010 they played on a line together in the playoffs and played against the other teams best lines. We also had the emergence of Giroux who was playing amazingly. These both allowed that Briere's line to play against easier competition. Had Emery been healthy we probably would have won. There would have been a lot of money to play with an extra 6.5 million to spare. Briere played a huge part in that run but lets not make it seem like he carried the rest of the team
