Well, Briere does bring a scoring touch. He has some age on him, but I don't think that will slow him much. I don't expect him to put numbers like he did in his prime though. He'll help on the PP. And he's a playoff performer. The contract length is good and the value is decent.

Only real problems are his size, we have too many centers and let's hope he isn't too banged up by age and injuries.

If we manage to give him bigger wingers, everything should be fine. But we must get rid of DD and/or Gionta. We already needed wingers, so makeing some room with one or both of these two should help. Gionta might be tough to move with his NTC (and I'm hearing he's still recovering from surgery?).

It addresses a need. But we still need to fix the size/grit issue.
