Montreal have signed Danny Briere to a two-year contract worth $8 million according to ESPN. http://espn.go.com/nhl/story/_/id/9450788/danny-briere-signs-montreal-canadiens
“”For me, the Montreal Canadiens’ fans are probably the most passionate fans in the NHL,” Briere said on a conference call Thursday night. “It’s an honor to be playing for them, in front of them, and all I’m hoping is that we will all be cheering in the same direction when the season starts.”
The Canadiens will be hoping Danny can turn on his playoff beast mode which helped Philly past Montreal in 2009 on their way to the Stanley Cup Final.
I am sure all Philly fans will be pleased that Danny has chosen a team outside of the new Conference D.
