Like Whitesnake said earlier... Briere isn't the problem. The current strucutre of our team is. That being said, Eller, Galchenyuk, Pacioretty and Bourque are NOT small/soft. Sure, ideally, Gionta would be switched by a complete two-way winger with size, and who is physical. But Briere can bring something we also lacked big time in the playoffs: Scoring.

Where I have a problem accepting our current lineup is on D. Too small and too weak as a unit. Tinordi MUST be starting in the NHL, and we must add another big D on top of him. Easier said than done... I hoped for Doug Murray as a temporary solution... Hopefully a guy like Pateryn improves a LOT and surprises everyone at camp. Tinordi, Pateryn, Emelin... that's a nice start.
