The thing is, Briere is probably the worst defensive forward in the league.
Because Ryder, just like all the other FAs in the market, would not sign for $4million/2 years. Briere is a nice target because of those numbers.

Is it really that hard to see that the contract they got Briere to sign really makes this deal just fine.

I don't get it. As of today, the difference between this year's roster and last year's is a Ryder for Briere swap, and more experience for our young players. Last year we finished 2nd in the conference, so why is it such a stretch to think this will still be a competitive team? Briere is an asset the organization just acquired for nothing more than $$$. I still fail to see how its a bad thing, as there's essentially no risk involved.

That is more of a Flyers' thing tho.

This deal will look awesome after Weiss gets 6+ for 5 years.

Good deal, now all we need are big bottom-6 players and a physical d-man.

Best that can be said about this is that it could've been worse. At least we're only stuck with him for two years. But man, what a ****ing dumb move this is.

4m is too much for Danny at this point, not that bad though.
