His curve looks like a damn wedge.

You mad the guy you decided to try to get the spotlight on instead of your man, has turned it up a notch and Bryz is still left grinding gears?

at least Gus [a rookie] skated hard to the bench on the change, while Danny coasted.

and Beef established it was a weak goal by Marty, not a great goal by Danny Boy

Danny still made it happen though. It wasn't Marty's shining moment, but it's not like Marty picked up the puck, turned around, and threw it in himself. Briere deserves some credit; instead, you pervert what I said and try to use it to remove credit. That's a pretty dishonest thing to do.

you said weak goal yesterday.

until it came time to praise Danny & use that to counter the criticism Danny got for the awful change.

at least we now can say this about the game winner:


Ponikarovsky still made the OT winner happen though. It wasn't Bryz's shining moment, but it's not like Bryz picked up the puck, turned around, and threw it in himself. Ponikarovsky deserves some credit.

Poni does, yes.

Guess what? Bryz deserves criticism too.

poni made it happen as well. It was a difficult play to bang bang tap the rebound up over the goalie.

as does Danny & everyone else who changed. Danny [a veteran] glided to the bench, made no effort to defend his player or the pass.

without that error, Bryz is not even in the equation.

at least Gus [a rookie] skated hard to the bench.

Really?

My beautiful Briere thread has digressed into discussion of Bryz?

Why can't we just have nice things?!?!

Bernie Parent 1974, you're being ridiculous, and I mean absolutely ridiculous. Take a step back, and look at how unobjective you are. I finally finished watching the game, and was expecting a horrendous effort by Briere, but I don't know if you noticed, he was actually the one that cleared the puck from our own zone after the Devils being there for a long while. Yeah, he didn't skate as fast as he could towards the bench, but who gives a crap, really?! It had nothing to do with the goal, and even if play was established, the Devils weren't there with all five guys, so the one that got on the ice in the change would've probably made it to his own zone safely, as well. The change itself was bad, but to look at Briere and chastise him for this is ridiculous.

Even in general Briere wasn't not even close to bad on defense in game 3. I actually paid more attention than usual to this now, and he made several good plays, and always battled for the puck. His effort on that Larsson goal in game 2 was putrid, and I fully blame him for that, but other than he did not play worse on defense than the rest of the team did.

I mean, if you're trying to match hckyplayer8, go right ahead, but just know that you're no better, you're just picking a different scapegoat.

not pressuring Kovalchuk & letting him get the game winning assist sure had something to do with the goal.
why?

because he glided to the bench, instead of playing defense.

Danny just cruised back, had the chance to cover Zubrus & just peeled off him. that was the game 4 game winner, by the way.

Here is a fun stat for you...Briere has been on the ice for 14 of our 24 (2 en) even strength goals against. 58%....that's incredibly brutal.

He has 8 even strength points...a minus 6.

It's not like anyone has said he was good at defense. EVERYONE knows he sucks at it. We kind of just accept the fact now.

Not good would be even...we need to get this guy more responsible line mates in the offseason to cover for this.

Well that goes beyond sucking. He is abysmal and a complete liability. What good is his scoring if he is giving it all right back and then some?

I wonder if he could work out on Couturier's wing.

Couturier's line is used as a shutdown line. It's not really a fit for Briere.

Yeah, not this season. We can't really touch that shutdown line right now. If we can get another defensive center Couturier and Briere could possibly work well together; they both have offensive skill. Worth a shot next season.

They could work well together if we had another capable shutdown line. I think it's hard to shelter Briere with the way this team is currently constructed.

Yeah, we'd need to bring in some other defensive forwards. I don't know who's available and affordable.

Or if the 3rd person on the line was also good defensively

Hartnell fits that bill. As does Read and Simmonds.

Read and Simmonds aren't good defensively yet (as clearly demonstrated by this series).

They were pretty solid during the regular season though.
