I agree there were better options, but the best ones all got ridiculous contracts except Horton who was going in for major shoulder surgery and missing half the season, making it a big risk. Would you rather have Clarkson or Clowe's contract?

We all knew the Briere signing was redundant for this team and it only made sense as an upgrade on DD. It didn't happen. So Briere sits, while arguably being the better center than DD, while DD continues to get preferential treatment over every other player in the organization.
What has Briere shown the last 2 years(11-12 and 12-13) to suggest he would be a better option than Desharnais?

Again, as far as DD getting preferential treatment, that's been proven wrong many times, not sure where you get that.
