Briere signs on for two seasons.

  • Danny Briere has signed with the Canadiens for what appears to be two seasons. Financial details have not been disclosed but Briere could be a great addition if he can recapture the magic that made him one of the best offensive players in the NHL over the last 10 seasons. I definitely feel better about a two year deal than the five Philly gave Lecavalier.

    What do you guys think?

    Well I agree two years is plenty. I am a little disappointed though, that we have not been able to land a little more offense or strengthen our defence. With Toronto and Ottawa improving and Detroit in our division next year I think we are going to have a hard time making the playoffs. Maybe that is what we need, another top five draft pick. As I see it we need to either make a trade for more offense or strengthen our defence if we are going to have a chance at a playoff stop. I do not think that our GM thought we would have such a great season as we did last year now we move up to 25th pick which does not necessarily give you a player with immediate impact. Briere is a short term patch to take Ryder’s minutes, hopefully he will show he still has the touch to score 20 goals because we will need them.

    our offence was 3rd last year and we did get better.

    to me there are two kinds of offence regular season and playoffs, we did not have sufficient offence when playoff time rolled around. That is were the improvement needs to take place when we are up against good defensive teams like Boston, just look at one of the best offensive teams in the league in Pittsburgh and what did they do when they got up against a defensive team like Boston. You have to be able to win the 2-1 games. So not only do you need to score but your defense needs to be playoff tough too.
