Discussion can continue in the sticky and also here.
Daniel Briere is headed home.
The Quebec native, recently bought out of his deal with the Philadelphia Flyers, has agreed to join the Montreal Canadiens on a two-year deal, the club announced on Thursday.
According to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, Briere’s deal is for $8 million, with a $4 million annual cap hit. Combined with the Flyers buyout ($825,000 per year for the next four years), Briere will make nearly $5 million in 2013-14 and 2014-15.
As mentioned above, the signing represents a homecoming for the veteran forward.
Briere, 35, grew up in Gatineau and played his junior hockey for Drummondville of the QMJHL.
This deal also marks a reconciliation of sorts. In 2007, Briere spurned the Habs as a free agent, opting instead to sign with Philadelphia despite the Canadiens offering a similar deal.
