    I can't be the only one to think about this. It fixes the DD, Briere & size down the middle problem!

    We could have kept power forward eric cole and not have to juggle lines to protect a clown car full of midgets.

    That's what annoys me the most. We pretty much switched Cole for Briere.
    Now, maybe there was more to it with Cole, but from the outside looking in, it just looks bad.

    Lol what? When we traded Cole everybody was happy with the trade, now we're gonna act like this was a bad move?

    I guess that the idea was that it was going to be great move if we'd save the money and/or replace it with something better or more appropriate.....We replaced it with Brière making the move, just about the 2nd round pick now. Still a good move based on who we got. Doesn't fix the immediate needs though.

    The other thing is that demoting DD after his lone decent game of the season doesn't exactly send the good message either.

    Actually... Connor "Coco" Crisp is that player.

    Yes, it was good based on the belief we were going to use the extra cap space appropriately. Now that we know we didn't, it kinda makes it worse.

    It's all about the pick as WS said. But for our current team, it's just bad. It didn't help us at all. I actually would have preferred nobody over signing Briere, at least it could have given us some wiggle room for youngsters, and we'd have an extra 4M for in season adjustments or next summer.

    It's not so much the issue of moving Cole, it's more about getting Briere. That made no sense.

    The organization is now taking the best French player available following the same pattern they use to pick a coach.

    Between Briere at 4 million, Cole at 4.5 million, and Ryder at 3.5 million, I think that Briere is my last choice.

    True. 3rd rounder pick it was. Crisp could turn out to be something really valuable.

    I know you're saying that as if we had to choose one.
    My point is that he would never make my list. Nobody would be my last option.

    I don't want to believe this but the Briere signing went against all common sense. What other reason can there be on this one?

    Then again, we did sign Samsonov so...

    I think there's a smurf quota that we have to meet.

    I'd rather dump them both and have Galchenyuk center the 3rd...

    We should get a kick-starter going to pay for Desharnais' buyout.

    Really disappointed by his speed, or lack thereof. I thought Briere would be much faster, as small players usually are.

    Swap DD and Brière and I actually like those lines. That's at least 4 big bodies, 5 if you count Galchenyuk, on the top 9.
