Canadiens agree to two-year deal with Briere
Danny Briere is not likely to hear many more boos at the Bell Centre.
The free agent from Gatineau, Que., has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Montreal Canadiens.
The Philadelphia Flyers used a compliance buy-out last week on the final two years of an eight-year, US$52 million deal Briere signed in 2007.
Because he turned down an offer from the Canadiens to sign with the Flyers that year, Briere was booed whenever Philadelphia visited Montreal.
Now, he’s a Canadien, returning to his native Quebec on a deal reportedly worth $4 million per season.
