Will the Flyers try to move Briere?

The Daily Times is reporting that the Flyers could be set to try to move Daniel Briere this summer.

It is noted that he has missed much of this year due to an abdominal strain that has plagued him in the past. It is also noted that Briere has a no trade clause and that his contract may be a tough pill for many teams to swallow. He is set to earn 8 million one year followed by three years at 7 million dollars each.

It should not be overlooked that it is also noted that Briere is a gamer and that he brings it all to the ice when he plays.

    So glad that Philly got him instead of the Habs.  Sure he's great when he's on the ice but you have to admit he has disapointed in Philly.

    F#%K the flyers.

    yet another over paid salary for a hurt player.

    how to screw the league.

    buy him out…..no one will take that salary.

    is rick depietro going to be traded soon too?

    How many years does he have left on that contract? 13? 14?

    I think Briere stays. He is still an excellent playmaker and powerplay specialist. Everyone gets on the Flyers for over paying…hello!! take a look at the NYR..they destroyed the league. briere may be overpaid but not by much. A healthy briere is at least a point per game player not to mention a clutch guy in the playoffs…

    I feel Jones, Lupul and possibly Knuble (although i hope not) will be moved either at the deadline or this summer.

    thats a given.

    too bad.  i like rick.

    Philadalphia: Kovalev
    Montreal:      Briere

    Two problems solved, two players who need a change. Two clubs where each could thrive

    The only thing the NYR destroyed is themselves.  LOL!  Philly is like the poor man's NYR.  They try to get themselves into cap trouble but are really just amateurs compaired to the pros in the Big Apple.

    briere could fit in with montreal…..

    but are you kidding me?

    kovalev on a tough team like the flyers?  please.

    The Habs have about as much cap space as the Flyers, they can't make that trade.

  10. habs79 says:

    I wouldn't make that trade if I was the Flyers either, but Briere isn't exactly though.

  11. mozzy says:

    HA!!! Hopeful habs fan??

    No way is Kovalev worth Briere!! Besides, Kovalev will fit into Flyers hockey like a ballerina ultimate fighting…let kovalev rot in montreal

    The thought of Chuck Liddell in a ballerina outfit is too funny for words!!!!
