Are you/do you think you will be happy with the Briere signing?

We already have 2 tiny players not scared to go to the "dirty" areas... Briere is redundant in that regard.
Bouchard may be a perimeter player, but if he gets back anywhere close to his pre-concussion level of play (healthy all season last year, bodes well for performance improvement this year with fully healthy offseason prep), he'll be far more effective than briere at 1/2 the price.
I can't imagine you're trying to argue that briere sans-flyers bodyguards, is going to make us "tougher" to play against, are you?
And if he's not bringing that element, Bouchard was clearly a superior option.
