Brière.
48 games played
25 goals
33 assists
58 points

Ribeiro
79 games played
16 goals
35 assists
51 points.

Riebiero isnt half the player Brière is.

Guys, if you were Buffalo, would you want to trade Briere to Montreal? Other than Ottawa, Montreal is probably the worst place in the league for the Sabres to trade Briere. I'd love to see it happen, but no way does Buffalo even consider Montreal as a trade destination.
The would trade him to any team if the return is right for them.

And he makes less than half his money.

And they still both have career highs of 65 pts.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Briere traded, he doesn't like Buffalo. My buddy was golfing last summer and Briere was at the same course, he talked to Briere and told him that one of our good friends was a die-hard Sabre fan and Briere's response was "Why"?...kind of tells you something.

I like Briere, but we are too small already and as much as I would like Ribs to be dealt I think the money being paid to Briere is too high...if Sabres can't sign and trade and don't qualify him I would make a lower offer like the one Samsonov got, but that amount per year is too much. I would rather trade for a player making that money aleady that would be a #1 line player with size.

I'd rather keep Ribeiro at $1.9m than have a $5m albatross as our second line centre.

the bottom line is... who cares about salary, if we can fit him, take him, hes worth it for one year, if he likes the experience, he is MUCH more likely to come back the year after, just like Kovalev did, and maybe accept a pay cut or at least less money than he could earn elsewhere. If he goes away, we'll have room for other players next year too aniway, but its not like were going to want to trade for a 6 millions dollars player next year if we sign him, so he's not that huge of a cap hit.

Well then you take Ribs and I'll gladly take Brière and we can both be happy.

The prospect of a Samsonov - Brière - Kovalev line is getting my juices flowing.

Briere is awesome, but at that price we're better off keeping Ribeiro.

We can also say we've improved over last year because our rookies (Higgins, Pleks, Perez) will all have better seasons that last year, but besides that we're still missing that one IMPACT player that Habs fans have been waiting for. Until we have that 80+ point guy we're not exactly where most fans want the team to be.

Regardless, next season should be an improvement over last season and i'm happy with our line-up but I wouldn't be opposed to another trade before the season starts.
The problem with this statement is that there's nothing you can do when players don't want to sign here! All the big impact players are gone, and trading to get one wont necessarily do much because we'd have to give away some of our core that may already be on the team. So it would be a case of addition by subtraction, and then we'd have to fill that spot.

Forget about this offseason. Gainey is done. This is our team, and I'm damn happy with it.

i dont think the sabres are dumb enought to trade a quebec born player to montreal. they'll have to play him 8 times a year? i think the habs should go hard for him next offseason when he's an UFA in july.

Living in montreal i have alot of friends who r habs fans and all they all say the same thing RYDER MUST BE THE WORST 30 GOAL SCORER OF ALL TIME. He showed hes nothin without koivu. One of of the worst skaters in the league doesnt contribute to anything. He will always be an ECHLer. And ribiero is worthless. He was benched at times during the year. Hes soft and pretty useless in every aspect. Why dont you think he hasent been traded yet its because noone wants him. Hes always in rumors but the other teams are smart enough not to take him. If he hasent been traded by now he WONT be traded. To trade ribiero ull more likely see a deal like the zednik one. Traded to some team 4 a 4th. Why would buffalo want your garbage. Buffalo has too many fowards if they were to trade briere, like i said they would want picks or young players, not soft streaky and slow players.

Is what I'm saying not true?

Does Ribeiro not make less than half his salary?

Do they not both have career highs of 65 pts?

Did I say whether I wanted Briere or Ribeiro or whether or not I thought Ribeiro was better than Briere?

Quite frankly, I think Briere at 5 million is an overpayment and signed for only 1 year (if the Sabres accept) I don't think he's worth having because likely that amount will only rise and he'd be gone by the end of the year.

Also of note is that Briere didn't have his break-out year until this past season and he's 2 years older than Ribeiro. Does that mean Ribeiro can be as good as Briere? Most likely not but at least give him a chance before completely writing him off, see what kind of numbers he puts up between Samsonov and Kovalev.

It was Briere real first good season where he played with a ton of dedication as the whole Buffalo team...

I sure wouldnt touch Briere at 5 millions per year considering he is injury prone and considering nothing guarentee he would play at the same level for the next years..

We already have Koivu in the same mold, people seem to forget how great Koivu has been for us, especially in playoffs outside the last one... Personally I prefer Koivu to Briere, Im sure captain courage will come back with a strong season.

It makes no doubt in my mind Briere is not even an option for Gainey.

True enough, even if we send Ribeiro the other way we'd be over the cap by half a million, so the question isn't Ribeiro<>Briere but how much more we'd have to give for a second line centre making $5m a year.

So would you like the Leafs to pick him up at 5m a year? (Serious question)

With the signing of samsonov and now the interest in briere maybe gaineys theory behind the new NHL is that speed wins. We were all over carolina because they couldnt keep up to us and couldnt hook and grab becasue theyd get penalties. We had the stanley cup champions on the ropes but lost out becasue of a lack of depth. If we can get breire Wed have one of the fastest teams in league. Everyone is alwasy saying we need a big center but y? U cant hit what u cant catch. Seems to be Gaineys moto. I think i agree with him.

Could be gaineys trying to go back to the days of the flying frenchmen. And if he suceeds, look the ****** out

I find it funny how...if a guy was injured the previous year he becomes injury prone.
2001-2002 78 games played
2002-2003 82 games played
2003-2004 82 games played.
