I think Briere would dive in if a contract were offered. With a free falling market, it's easy to see guys going down easy to the big US cities, but if Briere keeps on embellishing his stats, maybe we could spear-head an initiative to get him to Montreal.
Well said. And briere can stay in Buffalo, I don't want another flopper like Ribeiro.
Despite Briere's stats I do not want him on the Habs.
His spear on Ovechkin, backing down from the fight, whining in the media, reputation for diving etc..
We got rid of one prima donna baby when we got rid of Ribeiro.
Do we really need another ?
But this is all irrelevant : we will not see a Quebec-born superstar coming to the habs in a trade. None of them have the guts to try and play here. They prefer cushy US cities with big tax breaks and fans that go easy on them even when they suck.
Of course they will say in the media that they want to play here, but every time one is a UFA, they somehow never sign here.
Montreal is a great city for quebecois role players like Begin & Bouillon. It is not so much fun for talented superstars : a lot of pressure & media scrutiny.

Sorry I might be a little bit out of my place here but you guys trash Briere a lot and so so other teams yet you would LOVE to see him on your team. Is it you hate him or you hate when your team has to play against him, becasue I might say I hate Souray but I just close my eyes whenever he jumps onto the ice against Buffalo.
Anywho, Montreal is pretty much Briere's choice if Buffalo doesn't give him what they need which I hope they will.
Daniel Brière's first choice would be...Ottawa after Buffalo, not Montreal.
You just single-handedly told the world what the problem with soccer is. I hate divers in any sport.
Well it is a different sport, there are no shifts and just a 15 minute break in 90+ of play and a gigantic field so it's a completely different dynamic. Set pieces are so important that diving is almost required. Also after a half-hour of running around, your balance isn't that great anymore. I didn't start the diving and I won't be the one to stop it.

No really, my teams were Holland and Germany. All teams dive, the media just plays up some more than others. Though that Guardian ad on the Italian team was hilarious.
Take the R out of Briere and you get Biere. I like that. Sign him. Let him win a Cup this year in Buffalo and then take that feeling to Montreal. He can play with Kovalev and (cough cough) Samsonov (insert laughter here).
