Briere has a NMC and stated today he hasn't asked for a trade, so he's not going anywhere in the short-term I would think.

Therrien, to his credit, hasn't been afraid to sit veterans or regular roster players (Bourque, Desharnais, Murray, Bouillon) so I would assume this is just keeping with the "accountability" mentality and nothing more.
