I was wondering what we could realistically expect from Briere?
Was he more the victim of an underwhelming season by the team as a whole or is his regression really been that bad in the last year?

I'll offer David Desharnais for Samuel Morin just as a sign of good will?
If paired with a good playmaker, there's some hope. Since he's been with the Flyers, his best years/stretches have come alongside Vinny Prospal and Ville Leino. I also swore by the opportunity of putting him at LW, but it never happened. He's a sniper now, and still has a ridiculous shot. Get him on his forehand and he should score some points. Also let him sneak down to the side of the net and slam dunk some loose pucks in...he's good at that too.

He's got very little speed, average I'd say at this point. And I'm sure you're well aware of his lack of defense...enjoy that too. He's honestly best suited for about 10-12 mins a night of ES time, and as much PP time as possible at this point.
