Might not be the forward who fits our short-term needs the best, but if we take contract lenghts and salary into account, he's the guy who fits our team the best, "at this current point in time". Only two years, which lets our young prospects developing, has a history of producing in the playoffs, which can't be said about any of our forwards from last season, and has the ability to play C, which can never be a bad thing. If, say, Eller and Desharnais injure themselves, we still have: Plekanec, Briere, Galchenyuk as our centers, which is still decent.

I'm also sure his 5 on 5 production might be more than decent. High-tempo hockey and high skating hockey is the kind of hockey Briere likes the best. Had his best seasons as a Sabres in their good years... And our team's makeup is astonishingly similar to what Buffalo was at this time.
