So we won't be able to trade Danny or even buy him out then?

Edit: Boston was also bad around the lockout. Starting in 99: DNQ, DNQ, out 1st round, out 1st round, out 1st round, DNQ, DNQ.

I do not want to wish ill on anyone. But when it comes to Frodo I just wish this would end. This team does not need anymore drama.

Karma for the constant headache Danny has caused the whole fanbase this year.



I really hope he doesn't have a concussion. Those suck.

I was at the practice where he got concussed. I swear I did not see him get hit, fall, go into the boards, etc...He must have slipped in the shower on the locker room.

Why do people think he is faking the injury??? He has a full no trade clause. If he doesn't want to be trade, he doesn't have to be. He got hurt. It sucks. But he is not faking it.

Holmgren: "Hey, Dan, do you have a minute?"

Brière: "Paul, we've been through this 20 times since yesterday. I don't want to go anywhere. My kids are comfortable and doing well in school and I love the Flyers organization. Please stop asking me to waive my no-movement clause!"

Holmgren: "But ..."

Brière: "Didn't you give me that clause, Paul?"

Holmgren: "Yes."

Brière: "Didn't you mean it?"

Holmgren: "Yes."

Brière: "So ...?"

Holmgren: "It's Mr. Snider. He wants me to do something big before the deadline. And I've got a lot of interest from some of the other GMs. Please, Dan, please, please, please let me trade you!!!"

[Brière sighs and steps onto the practice ice.]

Holmgren (on phone): "I think I've brought him around, Mr. Snider. ... Thank you, sir. ... Yes, I'll call Peter Chiarelli back right away and ..."

[Brière skates head-first towards the boards]: "YEEAAAAAAAAA!!!!!"

Holmgren: "What was that noise?"

Him coming back solidifies the tank.

Watch him disrupt team chemistry.

Yeah. The only time he was good this season was early on when he had space on the PP. Then he stopped being good on the PP, too. He hit the Old-Man Wall fast and hard.

Please sit him the in suite so he doesn't get hurt. I would lose it if we lost out on trading DB and then couldn't buy him out because he re-injured himself. Let him collect dust and buy him out.

Can someone clarify: If Briere were to get re-injured but not be placed on LTIR, can he still be bought out?

In other words, is it that the player has to be healthy, or simply that they cannot be on LTIR at the end of the preceding season?

I would add they should strap pillows to him during practices on top of the whole press box thing.

I don't know about you guys, but the thought of Briere returning this weekend (or anytime at all this season really) is giving me a headache...

Hopefully if he really was playing injured this season before the concussion it is fully healed and he comes out and plays some good hockey again. Having the good Briere out there would do wonders for this team going forward and trying to get into the playoffs.
