Look nobody here is able to justify the Briere move logically. We add a 5'7-5'8 forward on a top 6/9 that already has three such players. The only argument we see is 'now our GM has no choice but to trade DD'.

So yeah, my bet is that the Habs offered more money, period. The rest is just PR bull****.
more like: you dont want to picture it because it wouldnt fit what you originally thought of the signing.
