An ESPN piece on Briere...
"The one regret that I have is being a little bit too honest publicly in explaining my decision," Briere said. "But it was my way to show respect to the Canadiens organization to show how great they were in making every effort to sign me. But I was wrong, I shouldn't have said anything. You learn from that. But this time around, when the opportunity came again, this is the one place I wanted to be, it's the one place I wanted to play."
And that, despite the treatment he got here as a visiting Flyer, is the reason he wanted to sign in Montreal.
"Whatever happened with being booed here, that never took away from how I've always felt, the Montreal Canadiens were my childhood team, a place that I dreamed one day I'd have a chance to play in," he said.
Habs fan growing up? You better believe it.
"I grew up with the Nordiques-Canadiens rivalry and you were either a Blue or a Red -- I was a Red," said Briere with a chuckle.
