I haven't watched Danny in a few years but was under the impression that his offensive game had kinda slowed way down.
Can anyone give an honest and non-emotional description of his play the last year or so (take salary out of the equation.) I'd kinda like to know what kind of player we have. Can he play 3rd line...are his defensive instincts tolerable?
Tough for me to judge this trade though. Sounds like it's a win for Roy as he got rid of a player he didn't really care for all that much...but I'm not sure how much (if at all) it will actually affect the team.
Blah, I guess it gets that contract off the books a year earlier, and Bri can play the 3rd lince center pushing Mitchell down to the 4th and Cliche to the bench, which is good. As long as he isn't playing wing on the top lines.
Roy and Sakic have done some good moves, but it would be nice if just one wasn't immediately met with complaining on our part.
I can't believe Pap didn't command more value then this. Briere is great in the playoffs, add that to the Talbot trade we now have two playoff warriors. I'm noticing a trend, where I think Roy gives up value in order to get veteran playoffs guys. Still I don't like this trade.
