This is a joke right? Daniel Briere has 281 career points in eight NHL seasons. I doubt he will increase his career production by 33% next year. For a guy who has never scored more than 65 points, Briere is a level below Paul Kariya and on the same page as a guy like Steve Sullivan.

Well he ain't no superstar, but he's better than Sullivan, don't kid yourself. The guy has skills that I hadn't seen him use before this season. Briere can control the play when he wants to and can play "keep-away" with the best of them.

At the very least Briere is as good as Paul Kariya.

Uh..so can Sullivan. In fact, while Kariya's skills, IMO, put him above Briere...Sullivan was just as important to the Preds as Vokoun was....and I'd wager to say he was just important as Briere was to the Sabres.

Sullivan is likely the captain this year, is a dynamite stickhandler, is lightning fast, AND is a great defensive player. What more does he have to do? Grow? No, because Daniel Briere is what we call "diminunitive," as well. Sullivan isn't even THAT much older than Briere. I just don't see where the scoffing is coming from...

Someone should post a video of that absolutely sick assist that Sullivan got at the start of last season.. With all the turns and dekes in the corner, before setting someone up with a tap-in. I want to see it again.. Can anyone decipher my **** recollection well enough to figure out what game it happened in?

I'm not downplaying Sullivan's skill, was one of the few pre-lockout Chicago players I liked but Briere IS better than him, no question.

Heatley is a much better player than Briere, and is like 4 years younger as well.

It was the opening game of the season, October 5th, against San Jose in Nashville. Scott Walker scored on the tap-in.

I still don't understand why Dumont is getting so much attention.

But that being said, good player, good contract, good fit. Buffalo doesn't need him. Nashville could use him.

This post has nothing to do with Daniel Briere or Dany Heatley!!!

Just a quick refresher of these guys stats over the last 3 years:

Briere: 170p/212gp = .80 ppg
Sullivan: 202/231gp = .87 ppg

In addition to that, Sullivan is a much better defensive player, typically misses fewer games to injury (averages about 79 gp'ed per NHL season since 1999-00), and is signed long term on a very reasonable contract. Sullivan since joining the Preds is scoring at a 1.05 ppg pace, so I wouldn't say that "Briere IS better than him, no question". I bet that Briere will probably outscore Sullivan by a relatively small amount, but that the other things that Sullivan does close the gap.

Just read my previous posts in the thread again. I'm tired of typing the same thing over and over.

You can say it all you want, but it doesn't make it true.

Speaking of Havlat...

Career high - 68 pts.

Havlat's career high goals - 31
Briere's career high goals - 32

Now I'm having fun. If you want to base your argument so much on Briere's stats, then I guess everything you just said applies to Havlat.

Briere is 28, by the way. I don't really think it matters since they get similar ice time and have played a similar amount of games (Over the past 5 seasons, Havlat has played 298 games, Briere 320). If Havlat was still a 22 year old prospect playing 9 minutes a game then the age difference would matter, but both have had about the same amount of time (4 or 5 years) to put up numbers, and, honestly, neither has.

I might open up a thread asking people whether or not Havlat deserves being placed on a different level than Briere when taking into consideration their stats and all. I don't want to clutter this Dumont thread any more.
