Love the trade! Let's face it, Briere is getting older anyways and didn't really produce. We get someone who is younger, has some offensive potential and has a gritty side to him. Plus we get a 5th rounder to boot.
Good deal for both parties. Nobody can hate it from our own perspective. Good 5th rounder too, I will never hate a trade involving a pick. But we still need to unleash some salary at some point...time to move Moen, Budaj and Gorges.
