    Danny Briere

    Last night on TSN, there hockey panel were talking and Daren Dreiger mentioned that he heard Philly was going to buy out Danny Briere.

    I've always liked him and thought he never did fully flurish in Philly to his talent. I'm thinking he would be a nice fit if the price was right. I wonder what salary he would get at this point ? He could be a real good #3 or even #4  ( Pallie, Campbell & Briere).

    Incredible Playoff performer. 

    108 Games - 50 Goals, 59 Assists 109pts., -9.

    More than a Pt per game player. How many of those are there around?

    The -9 is really bad considering his point production. Love to have him for the PP, but don't know if he'd fit in Boston.

    He's just 2 or 3 seasons removed from having a 68 point season, i dont think itd be worth signing him if we were just gonna put him with Campbell and Paille on the 4th line.

    I'd rather they find a way to re-sign Horton who's a plus player & see what Sod can do during a full season before worrying about making any other adjustements. I also want to see some of the kids get a better look. Like a Spooner & Koko. This team is the beast of the East & it's meant to be tinkered with. Not realigned.

       I read somewhere that his ex and kids live in Philly, so I would not be surprized if he doesn't sign a sweetheart deal with Pittsburgh.

    That way, he gets to stay near his kids, and gets to play on a Stanley cup contender.

    Briere could be a bargain because he might be looking more to join a team with a good shot at the cup rather than just going for the money....

    Guys, they play hockey for MONEY.  Outside of Paul Kariya in 2003, there aren't too many examples of players giving away money for glory or family.

    If bought out, Briere would be getting about $800 000 from the Flyers each year for the next four years.  That could lead him to sign for less money than one would otherwise expect.

    @d-o-O: As far as I can tell, Compliance Buyouts give the same value (1/3 or 2/3 of remaining money) as Ordinary Course Buyouts.

    @NAS: I think the teams that would court him will come in lower than what would be the normal market for a player of his caliber because they know he's already taking in that salary.

    Souray is the closest I can find to a precedent for this though, and in his case poor performance is likely most of the drop in his salary.

    I don't know too much about Espo signing for less to stay with a team or for his family.

    Can you elaborate?

    Guys, I KNOW what motivates ALL players, and your OPINION about someone maybe NOT following that pattern is therefore STUPID.

    i do not see it happening.

     

    At the beggining of the season there are to many other options to explore. If they are in need they can find something at the deadline simular to what he could offer.
