I love how every Quebec-born player feels then need to tell their agent to keep us in the race until the very end. It reflects well on them in the media. For once I'd like to hear one of them say, "No, I didn't want to play there. I ruled them out from the beginning." Don't tickle the Canadiens fan base's scrotum while you choose your team.

Never did!
Even at 4 or 5 years I'd take him at that salary over Biere at 1 year

Hearing 2 years 8mil with the Habs..

I've hated him for years but he does have 109pts in 108 playoff games.
And he's two years removed from a 78 point season.

Not much risk in a 2 year deal, if anything he can be moved next offseason.

Hate to sound like a broken record but he is not the biggest or strongest UFA on the market.
Maybe this signals a potential trade involving Gionta or DD?

Very mixed feelings at this point

No it's not. He's 33. Briere is 36. At the end, it's the same except that in 5 years from now, the salary cap will be higher.

Really disappointed if this proves true. The size, he's 36 on very back end of his career. Why not Vinny? You get size, 3 years younger?

I'd rather be stuck with Briere for two years than Vinny at five.

Then again, its kind of like picking which cancer you'd rather be afflicted with. In either case, I'd rather have neither.

Report of Daniel Briere signing in Montreal was news to #habs management when they read the report. No deal.

Because Vincent Lecavalier did not want to play here.
