If Briere plays on the wing, this is the only guys I want him to be paired up with.

If not, Briere between both younglins (Galchenyuk, Gallagher) is what I'd like the best.

Briere has a deadly shot, a nose for the net and although he is fast he will still quite easily be a 20 goal scorer when he is 39. Cole on the other hand will be retired for 4-5 years.

Briere + 3rd >> Cole.

Just because Cole is big doesn't make him good, I'm sick of this argument.
So Cole's body is done and yet Briere's the one missing time to injuries.

Briere will score 20 goals in 4 years time yet 2 years ago he only had 16, and this year he was on pace for 14.

It's not the fact that Cole is big that makes him good it's the 44 goals he's scored over the past 2 seasons compared to Briere's 22.

Yikes! I'm sure every team in the league would love to play against two undersized forwards ( one who is in decline and horrible defensively) and a delopping guy with very little physicality.

That line would get killed. Gallagher is not going to get any better spending every shift looking over his shoulder.

Am I wrong in thinking that he's probably the most skilled forward we have now outside of Galchenyuk?

In terms of Pure skill, I'd say you're probably right, although Collberg is mad skilled
