Bring back Craig Rivet to fix the defense imo.

Briere isn't signed for 7 years at 7M+, nor did we give up assets to obtain him. So no, not at all the same situation, and ya, chill the fak out. Or you know, do what you do best and go full teenage high school girl drama style.
Briere is old, and declining, but he fits a need as a right wing depth player. He's signed for two years at 4M and then he'll be gone, big whoop. Is he taking the spot of some youngster that was ready to come in?? Nope. I disagree on it not making us better, he won't be detrimental to our club, I don't believe that. On a 3rd wing with strong puck guys like Eller and Gally, I think he can fit right in.

So what are we crying about here?..I expect our team to be competitive in 2years, not before then. Precisely why I wanted PK signed to cheap long term deal asap.
Guys like MaxPac, Eller, PK, Galla, Gally, Emelin will enter their good stages of maturity. We'll have younger guys like Tinordi, Beaulieu, Collberg coming along.
We're not going to win now, or next year. So ya, I won't start screaming at my cpu screen that we sign Danny freaking Briere for two years.

Not to mention, maybe more things will unfold before the season starts.

I am going to build from within and I am not in favor of using UFA to get some older washed up player to make additions to the team (or something like that)

Marc Bergevin


Sorry Habs fans, I was just joking around when I made that statement. Love, Marc.

Im kind of curious as to what would happen if one of these franco superstarts said how much they love playing for Randy Cunneyworth. And see what the media says then

Yeah, you're right. I guess I imagined all those times he goes and stands in front of the net, taking abuse to screen the goalie.

Although I admit, he did a lot less of that this year and I think that was a big part of why he wasn't as successful.

Briere didn't even put on the habs jersey yet but you're right, this may be a major fail. Big risk with Briere's injuries lately. Not to mention, 4 mil with this risk? Why?

Well I rather Leblanc builds his confidence having a strong start in the AHL and then come up here whenever we have injuries. No need to rush our kids.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with depth.

I like the signing. I'm not sure about the NMC, but 2 years isn't a big deal to me

Hes a good leader off ice. We also have less cap room to overpay someone who isn't worth it.

Its risky, but I think/hope Briere will flourish in a big market. Even if hes not a top6, a top9 depth guy with skill never hurts. We could have Moen or White playing top9.

I officially hate pretty much all of you. You have the ability to make reading this board sometimes fun, but mostly just ******.

I can't believe the over reactions I've been reading.

Same **** every year, just a different color.

What happened to y'all? You used to be fun...

I never understood why Koivu and now DD stay in front of the net while our bigger guys play perimeter. It's kind of embarrassing. DD isn't good at it, but he's there, *****?

As many have said before this only make sense if DD and or Gionta get replaced by bigger and more physical guys. Otherwise the Habs are still gonna get pushed around again this year.

I'm neutral on this for now so let's hope MB has another trick up his sleeve
Considering that I haven't found his tricks very good I'm kind of worried he does have more tricks up his sleeve.

Finally some sanity. Agree on all counts.

End of the day, people need to understand if not briere it's nothing at all. So anything helps if used right. People need to chill. Listing the risks and concerns is one thing, crying over something that we haven't even seen yet is too much though.

His contract was over this year and Briere is exactly what we don't need. Pacioretty and Plekanec must be on suicide watch.

I was hoping Bergevin would bring some intelligence to the club but it seems he is about as brain dead as it gets.

This still isn't as bad as the DD extension. I mean, the DD extension is, by proxy, the whole reason we're pissed about this.

So this was what the lowballing of Subban lead to after all ? I was told to wait until this summer and see what Bergevin would do with the cap room. Well Briere is what he did apparently. Sick move.

Kaberle's contract was still worse. It was three years for us (buying out the third), lesser player.
