Briere’s game winner just what the Avs needed

Aaron Rodgers said it three weeks ago. My friend and fellow Mile High Sports Daily columnist James Merilatt addressed Broncos fans and penned it one week ago. Frankie Goes to Hollywood sung it three decades ago. Relax. That’s what Daniel Briere did yesterday, when he netted his 300th career goal, a brilliant play that saw the newly acquired centerman deflect – and then find...

Should Flyers Fans Be Worried About Daniel Briere?

Last season for Daniel Briere was one that nobody saw coming. Having put up 68 points the previous season, the Flyers fans were looking forward to another successful year out of Briere. Unfortunately, it was a rather slow season for the 34 year-old forward. He went from a 68 point season to a season in which he only scored 16 goals and had 33 assists. At one point, Briere went 29...
