A Big Year For Briere

from Sam Donnellon of the Philadelphia Daily News,

Too much money, too little return. He was untradable, an anvil around a team unable to improve because of salary-cap restraints.

His heart was questioned. His guts, too. His head.

“People will never say it to your face,” Briere was saying the other day. “I’m aware. I think I’m a realist. I’m aware of the contract and what that means in terms of last year. I think a lot of people maybe don’t quite understand the difference between being injured and not living up to the contract.

“But I’m not really worried about it because I’m confident that last year is behind me and I can now focus on being the player I’m supposed to be in Philadelphia. It’s not really important what happened in the past. It’s what you do in the moment. That’s how hockey and sports operates. It’s what can you do for me now.”

“Now” is a month away.
