Good call, I'm not a huge Briesbois fan but he has had an OK season this year. Experience does usually count come playoffs.

Bruins forwards are gonna attack Breezer hard, he cannot handle them at all. A big guy like Wheeler can easily go around him along the boards to gain the zone (Breezer won't be able to check him). If not possible, then a soft dump into Breezer corner will work all the time, Breezer is too slow to get there first, and wouldn't accept any hit even from a little guy like Kessel or Savard so he backs off and just lets them get the puck.

He barely belongs playing irregularly during season, in a playoff series any decent coach like Julien will focus his attackers on Breezer like a laserbeam, he is the weak link. We're better off with a rookie.

Good call by Bob. Weber might have been very nervous.

Brisebois was our best offensive D in the playoffs last year. He might have had a few gaffes but he was much more effective than Streit or even Markov who completely disappeared (ok that was because of injuries, but we are in a similar situation right now).

Gainey made the right call, I'm not a fan of Breezy either but in the playoffs I'll take his experience over Weber

Just wondering if the logic to back this up was the series against the Bruins and Julien last season?

Brisebois >>>> Weber in a series against Boston, especially on the road.

No smartass it's from understanding hockey strategy and watching Breezer play all year.

BTW his play last year against Boston has become somewhat mythic. He got some points by getting shots through (he does have an accurate shot) in the first few games but after that didn't produce anything and was still his usual liability on the ice.

If you watch this guy closely you can see him make a mistake on almost every shift, it really baffles me how he is not -30. I swear this guy is the luckiest player alive, almost every time he screws up he is bailed out by teammates, goalie or opposition stunned by the unexpected oppurtunity.

Even a guy like Natey2k4 who goes to Brossard facility looking to buy game used Breezer jock straps might remember that game against Atlanta a few weeks ago where Breezer, under no pressure, put it right up the middle onto Kovalchuck's stick. Somehow he was bailed out by a combination of Kovalchuck not getting a great shot off (stunned by his luck) and the goalie being ready. The series is going to be hard enough without Breezer giving his teammates similar heart attack situations.

If Breezer gets tired later in the series, then you go with Weber.
That will take one game!

A little? They quite frankly would have been eliminated against the Bruins if it wasn't for Brisebois. Didn't he have the game winner in one of the games?
