The Montreal Canadiens landed a veteran scoring forward with playoff experience, who had been bought out of his previous contract. Numbers Game looks at the Canadiens acquisition of Danny Briere. The Canadiens Get: RW Danny Briere. Briere, 35, has been a very productive player, scoring at least 24 goals in eight of his 13-plus NHL seasons, but hes coming off a season in which he had 16 points and was minus-13, with subpar possession numbers, in 34 games, prompting the Flyers to buy out the final two years of his contract. Wrist and concussion injuries cost Briere 14 games last season and he missed a dozen the year before for a variety of reasons, including another concussion, so there are naturally health concerns for a smaller forward who is in his mid-30s. He also played 16:04 per game last season, his lowest time on ice per game since 2001-2002 so, coupled with his career-low scoring rate (0.47 ppg), there is ample evidence that Briere is on the decline. What the Canadiens can hope for is that Briere can have his minutes focused on the offensive end and remain a productive power play contributor -- he scored 102 of his 283 over six seasons in Philadelphia with the man advantage -- so that he is a viable source of secondary scoring. Briere has also been a sensational playoff performer, tallying 109 points in 108 career playoff games, ranking sixth among active skaters in playoff points per game (and the top five arent available). Signed to a two-year deal for $8-million, Briere will play in a scoring role for the Canadiens, but expectations have to be kept in check. Once a player starts to decline in his mid-30s, its rare that they recapture previous form, so either the Canadiens will have to hope Briere is an exception, perhaps able to bounce back with a full NHL training camp and season (as opposed to the lockhout-shortened variety) or they are prepared for him to effectively be a specialist, providing secondary offence and just waiting for the playoffs to make a real difference over the next two years.

Strief, who has spent his entire eight-year career in New Orleans and became a starter in 2011, had entered free agency last week but had expressed an interest in working out a deal to remain with the Saints if the club could field a competitive offer. Financial terms of the deal, announced Monday by general manager Mickey Loomis, have not been disclosed. Last season, Strief started 15 regular season games and both playoff games, giving him 45 regular season starts and four playoff starts in his career. He also was a regular reserve on playoff teams in 2009 and 2010. "We are excited to announce that Zach will stay with us into the future," Loomis said. "Not only has he done an excellent job at the right tackle pposition, but he has served us well as an offensive team captain for the past two seasons and has always been a great asset in the community since he first came here in 2006.dddddddddddd" Strief, who played in college at Northwestern, was one of two seventh-round picks by the Saints in the 2006 NFL draft, the other being receiver Marques Colston. Strief has appeared in 109 career regular season games and has been one of the veteran leaders of one of the top ranking offences in the NFL the past three seasons, duing which the club has ranked first, second and fourth in net yards per game. He has also taken part in numerous community service endeavours, highlighted by his work with a restaurant which trains at-risk New Orleans youth the skills needed to work at various positions in the citys renowned restaurant industry.
