Cole played like **** all season. He had no more drive and it showed on ice. He barely backchecked and did little on the forecheck. With all the talk he was having of retiring during the lockout, it was showing in the season even though he said he didn't mean it anymore. He was actually wondering whether to play or not.

Briere actually does want to play.

While I do agree with every ranting on how this doesn't fix our size issues. I have to say that Briere will most likely be producing numbers we want, or at least for his contract. If anything, this guy's a work horse and doesn't give up.

This is all coming from a guy who hated Briere since he started in Buffalo. Tbh I still don't like him, but I respect his skills and what he can bring to the team.
