And the biggest reason why is that we didn't crash the net. Briere is not going to help in that regard.

It is a two year contract that buys time for some of our prospects to grow. Considering that he is taking Ryder's spot who was an invisible pile of garbage down the stretch and in the playoffs, I don't see how this can be any worse than a lateral move.........certainly doesn't make the team worse.
It's not just last year, in the past 4 seasons he's had one good year, one bad year and 2 average ones. He's also been sheltered a lot in Philly and I'm not sure we will be able to do that here since we have a bunch of other players that need sheltering as well.
