Briere is old, and declining, but he fits a need as a right wing depth player. He's signed for two years at 4M and then he'll be gone, big whoop. Is he taking the spot of some youngster that was ready to come in?? Nope. I disagree on it not making us better, he won't be detrimental to our club, I don't believe that. On a 3rd wing with strong puck guys like Eller and Gally, I think he can fit right in.
So what are we crying about here?..I expect our team to be competitive in 2years, not before then. Precisely why I wanted PK signed to cheap long term deal asap.
Guys like MaxPac, Eller, PK, Galla, Gally, Emelin will enter their good stages of maturity. We'll have younger guys like Tinordi, Beaulieu, Collberg coming along.
We're not going to win now, or next year. So ya, I won't start screaming at my cpu screen that we sign Danny freaking Briere for two years.
Not to mention, maybe more things will unfold before the season starts.
Basically my thoughts. People seem to think that the habs are supposed to build a cup contender for next year or the year after. It'll take time people, deals like Briere's are just stopgaps until one of our youngsters takes his spot.
