Gionta has prevented about twice as many goals for as goals against with his stupid slappers 50 feet away from the net when there was a breakout.
Do you understand that players do not play in bubbles, and inserting Briere here and replacing Gionta with him would result in a net negative if you examine the metrics? Briere was much, much, much better surrounded during his playoff heroics in Philly than he would be here.

Context is everything, and you are conveniently ignoring it.
