As far as Briere goes he should definitely be bought out but I almost guarantee that he absolutely rips it up next year on his new team.
If Lavy is the coach that for sure will happen. We need a coach who will actually play a system and one that will play to the strengths of his team. Lavys only answers to anything are changing the line combos, calling a timeout, and punching coke machines

Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek
Schenn - Couturier - Simmonds
Gagne - Laughton - Read
Rinaldo - Hall - Talbot
Rosehill

Timonen - Schenn
Streit - Coburn
Gustafsson - Grossmann

Mason
(TBD)

That is DEFINITELY a playoff roster. We could never beat Boston, but that's definitely a playoff roster.

**** it. We were a playoff team this 1/2 season if we weren't injured all the time and Bryzgalov played halfway to his capabilities.

I still love Briere for the Miller helmet tap and everything else, but it's simple math.

When did it become ok for this team to just aim for the playoffs? The only team that team will beat is the Pens

Victim of the cap, for sure. I agree.

How are you confident that the Flyers currently have a playoff roster when their only goalie (assuming Bryz is bought out) is statistically one of, if not the, worst goaltenders of the past 4 seasons?

It became OK since people are actually looking at the future for once and not just winning the next couple years. Would it be better for the Flyers to overpay for a guy like Horton and trade Couturier, Schenn and picks for a guy like Boyle and other former all-stars? Sure the team would probably have a better chance winning a cup in the short term but you sacrifice the future. This way the young guys all get the experience, grow together and be serious contenders in a few years. In the mean while you ice a competitive team that if a few people get hot or you get good playoff match-ups you might get lucky and make it to the finals or something.

I just don't understand why someone would want to sell the future for a shot now. That's how this organization has operated for a long time and consequently they don't have a cup in 40 years.

You complement Briere with the right players (like when he had Prospal and Leino) and the guy is money. Yeah his D has regressed but come playoff time you can't argue with his productivity..

Anyway, if it wasn't for the money I still would have liked to have kept him.

I disagree. He has had amazing years with us, and amazing series too. Should've won the Conn Smythe in 2010 imo. His only two bad years were the 2 lasts.

I just am. That's how bad I think Bryzgalov and Leighton were.

I disagree.

Briere wouldn't have to be Briere if he wasn't Briere.

In other words, Briere wouldn't have to have scored "clutch" playoff goals if he didn't give up so many goals with his lazy play.

Well, I don't believe in "clutch".

Also, you missed the point.

How is that not a playoff roster? It looks like a team with a balanced offense and balanced defense? The only issue is the goalie, and that may or may not turn out to be an issue in the end. Why would they be swept by a team that can forecheck?

I think just because Lavy cannot or will not adjust in game or in series. A goalie who can move the puck like Mason or Bernier could really help in that department though

I am not sure I agree with this. too many question marks. especially in goal.

Good quote. Loved Danny in Flyers orange, wish him nothing but the best. Will never forget that 2010 run.

But a truly underrated DB48 moment, his shootout goal in Buffalo to end the Flyers losing streak back in 08 I believe.

Danny Briere Bought Out

We knew it was coming but according to the rumor it is true:

Quote:
Per Pierre LeBrun, Flyers have informed Daniel Briere that he's been bought out. Not official until 48 hrs after cup final.
-NHLupdate

Also here:

http://espn.go.com/blog/nhl/post/_/i...e-coaches-more

Quote:
BRIERE BUYOUT

Daniel Briere will be an unrestricted free agent shortly, with the Philadelphia Flyers deciding to buy him out.

A source told ESPN.com that Briere and Paul Holmgren met last week, at which time the Flyers GM informed the veteran center of the team’s decision. No bitter feelings, though, as I’m told Briere feels Holmgren handled it with class.

The buyout will wipe out Briere’s $6.5-million cap hit for the next two seasons.

What remains to be seen is whether the Flyers will buy out goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, a decision that has been met with mixed opinions within the Flyers front office.

The decision is whether to do it now or wait one more year, when they can still get a cap-friendly buyout.

Perhaps what might push the Flyers into buying out Bryz now is the availability of young netminder Jonathan Bernier from the Los Angeles Kings.

My TSN colleague Bob McKenzie reported during our Insider Trading segment Tuesday night that the Flyers, Maple Leafs and Islanders were among the most interested teams that coveted Bernier.

One source told ESPN.com Tuesday that there are five teams now with serious interest in Bernier, the list cut down from the nearly dozen clubs that poked around on him.
Has been fun Briere. Up and downs but nothing against the guy. Wish him luck in the future.

EDIT: Thanks for moving it. Didnt see the other thread haha.
