I received a note today asking about Daniel Briere. Should they/shouldn't they? My quick retort, as it is far too nice out to spend paragraphs waxing on this: Briere is still a very, very useful player, when healthy. He'd immediately improve the PP, and be a solid leader in the dressing room. So sure, he may be a Vinny consolation prize, but I say what the heck. If Briere is available at, say, $3.5-4 million/year on a short term deal, do it. Other targets (and I should preface by saying there seem to be lots of ex-Habs out there, I'm not focusing on them for any reason other than size, largely). Daniel Cleary would be a great depth add, as he is a solid, veteran checker with a scoring streak. Mike Komisarek would provide depth on defence, but I'd only consider him  at a $500k-$1 million salary. Another decent veteran to add as a 6 or 7 would be Hal Gill, who was bought out today by Nashville. Boyd Gordon would be a gritty fourth line addition, as would Max Lapierre...
