When was the last time Briere cold play against anything but pre-school opposition?

Terrible, Danny Briere doesn't fill a single need, he's declined to near Gomez levels. He offers us nothing, we actual have real needs and Danny Briere is not one of them.

He passed to Plekanec for a one-timer that went in.

Even if we don't sign Briere, we still need to trade to get bigger. I trust that Bergevin has a trade or two waiting to be confirmed in the case we would sign Briere.

If we do sign Briere, Gionta, or Desharnais (or both) better be gone.

I thought we should have kept him last year, regardless of Briere. Would've rathered kept his salary for the next 2 years instead of signing Briere or another 2-year, expensive stopgap.

Where there's smoke, there's fire. The only reason they can't say it is because the NHL warned teams that no offers can be officially made until Tomorrow (only talk right now). This is the only reason why he is playing coy. 2 years of this smurf, dunno if I will be able to stomach this

I have no problem with Briere, he's an upgrade on DD, but DD better be the one that get's traded to make room for Briere. If we trade Eller or Pleky to make room for Briere, then Bergevin will give Houle a run for his money as worst Habs GM.

The problem here is that Gionta is a better player than Briere, and DD is still just 26.

Which is why signing Briere in the first place is questionable.

I'm worried that Briere has declined too much to add any depth scoring. He is going to be 36 by the time the season starts and I'm not sure if he can get back to even scoring 20+ goals in a season.

Gionta isn't really a selke nominate himself.. Look I'm not saying Briere is some kind of demi-god. He's really average now, but so is Gionta whose main positive attribute is that he'll score an acceptable number of goals at a regular pace. Neither are a plus on their own end.

In the end I don't really want Briere to be signed anyways, its not really a step forward unless there are ulterior motives.

Just the fact that Bergevin is interested in Briere make me vomit a little.
