Paul Holmgren's Statement On Danny Briere
Posted 6/20/2013 1:20:00 PM

“I met with Danny last week and informed him of our decision to use a compliance buy out on his contract. This was a very difficult decision for us to make as Danny has been a very good player for us over the past six years. Danny came to our organization as a free agent in July of 2007 and has been a tremendous player, person and role model in all aspects and for that we thank him. We wish him continued success and best wishes in any future endeavors.” - Flyers GM Paul Holmgren

Briere played 364 regular-season for the Flyers, scoring 124 goals and handing out 159 assists. The playoffs is where Briere made his bones as he averaged more than a point per game - 72 points in 68 postseason games - for the franchise.
