Just like we needed to chill after the gomez trade. Do you ever take a position on anything? Or is always wait and see. This deal makes no sense at all. It's not the end of the world, because it's only two years, but it does nothing to make the habs better.
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 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...
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.
