As for Briere, yeah it DOES **** us up. We had the advantage of having lots of cap space and we could've used that to our advantage in a trade. We could've taken some salary off a team like the Flyers and not have had to give that much back. Instead we got Briere and this avenue was taken away. When you have cap space you use it for your advantage. Now the only way we can take on salary is to trade away equal salary back. We're kind of cap ****ed. So unless there's a team out there that really wants Brian Gionta, we're not going to be able to deal for their shutdown guy.
I hear you but this year trading was difficult as best. With the cap going down gm's preferred to keep their assets and wait for the cap to go up next year.

Trades are not the magical fix-it you seem to think. you need to give something for it. We can't always have what we want so we make due.
