Dunno about "way more"... or "very"... but Briere looks like he still has some of his stuff, anyway, just hasn't really found the icetime and lineup consistency to best demonstrate it, perhaps. Also, perhaps not. But at least he flashes some hope. Erat... I honestly don't know, haven't seen him enough. Younger, "bigger", cheaper in real $ (though a bit higher cap hit)... I'd look at the tapes and chat with the pro scouts at least. DB would have to agree, of course. But Washington is closer to his family situation still, right? I wouldn't count it as a totally impossible swap, but I'm also not sure that Erat's latest want-out responses endear him as an acquisition target in general, even if the pro scouts did somehow sway me on his level of play. I'd probably pass on just about anything involving Erat actually.
