I always thought Ryder was under appreciated in Montreal but that Briere signing is looking better and better. For me it was a head scratcher when MB announced the signing but considering that Briere had to prove himself to his coach and had to overcome another concussion I think those numbers look reasonable especially if he comes through in the playoffs.

I hope that's a typo and not a Freudian slip. I don't want to go through another cycle of mediocrity.

If he produces like he always does in the playoffs, he will. At least I hope he will.

Basically the habs have Bourque, Gionta and Briere signed at a compiled 12.3M$ for a production of 75pts, thats unacceptable. But its also the reality in todays NHL.


Gionta and Briere have been more proactive lately, they do a good job of giving this team a good position in the PO, but they will need to be replaced if this team wants more than just that.

At least Gionta brings some other elements to a game (leadership, defensive ability), remember when we had Gomez doing nothing at 7,357,143$? At least those guys' contracts will be done soon. Unlike Clarkson's & Lecavalier's.

I'll take Brière over Ryder or Lecavalier, because between three marginally productive seasons, Brière is the least harmful to his team in terms of money and character. Also have to give him some credit for being a good soldier and giving us decent production in the second half. I'll even change my mind about his contract IF he steps up in the playoffs, though I don't believe he can recapture that magic at his current age and without his big Philly linemates. Hope I'm wrong about that.

Jagr and Raymond or Morrow for the price of Briere.

Move him to the 3rd line and he plays like a 3rd liner.

Lecavalier would have been a nice mentor for Galchenyuk.

He would also bring in size and cup xp.

One thing is that Lacavalier's and even Ryder's stats might have been better here as I have a feeling MT would have played them more than he plays Briere.

How would this team survive without Briere's picture on the official website? Why is that again? Out of all people, and this putz is the face of the franchise?

And when he scores the OT winning goal in game 6 first round to win the series, which is very possible, he will earn the rest of the money.

Brière has been playing either 3rd or 4th line all season with almost no PP time. How much production can we expect out of him? Not a very fair comparison with the roles played by Ryder and Vinny on their teams.

The only reason he might produce in the playoffs is that he's on a better line with Gio and Bourque.

Amazing how my disdain for Gio has subsided now that he plays where he belongs, on the third line with less PP time.

Yet people **** on Eller and he deals with the same issues go figure.

Except for the first two months of the year, Eller has shown nothing. Briere certainly had more consistency.

The only time we've seen Brière play with a good winger is in a McDonald's commercial.
