Yes, he absolutely IS better than Gionta.

Gionta is supposed to be a character guy who stands up in important games and in the playoffs. He absolutely didn't for the last two years.

Briere actually stands up whenever the game is on the line. I'd take him before Gionta 10 times out of 10. Hell, if we could just take the contract off, and give the remaining year at 5M to Briere instead of Gionta, I'd do it.
