Except that he really isn't. Someone will provide a link eventually, but there was a statistical breakdown done of Briere's playoff heroics. The verdict? That yeah, he scores a lot in the playoffs, and it still doesn't make up for how bad he is in the other direction. Briere is THAT bad. He's awful and would be the softest player on a team everyone on this forum keeps telling me is the softest in the league. Do not want.

Whether we debate how gionta comes back next year from that injury is another question
