All this stuff about drafting for need, drafting to get bigger, we need to address size and then they put more effort and interest into Briere than Lecavalier?
Sounds so bipolar.
The thing about Briere is (and I say this as a guy who wants a bigger, more physical team) unlike Lecavalier you could nab him now for less and maybe even just two years. I want to get bigger and more physical, too. But I can understand giving him some consideration. Briere may still be able to step up in the playoffs for cheap. And he doesn't affect your long term plans. We need size up front though, and I think Briere would be more effective for the Bruins.
Lol I like how Lebrun says Bergevin MAY circle back on Briere and people are ******** on Bergevin like its a guarantee that he's going after Briere now, its just speculation people need to chill the **** out already.
I am assuming that this is just more unfounded media nonsense. What MB did at the Draft clearly showed concern at the size and toughness of the team, to go after Briere would not make any sense. Briere is 35 and in declining production ( yes yes play-off guy ) and clearly MB didn't go hard at the 33 year old declining production 6 foot 4 great at face-offs Vinny, so that wouldn't make any sense either.
