That’s a picture of when Drury and Briere were in Buffalo from 2004-2007. They both hit free agency respectively in 2007 and surprisingly both signed elsewhere but in the Atlantic Division. Drury went and had a disaster with the Rangers and the best Briere did was losing in the finals to ChiTown in ’10. Regardless, this team went to the Eastern Conference Finals two years in a row in 2006 and in 2007.
That team that Ruff had was a legit powerhouse. Unreal.
Rumors of Briere going back to Buffalo but I gotta tell you he played his best hockey in Buffalo and it might reignite his game whatever he’s got left. He could be a good influence to young guys that are on the team and possibly any that make it outta training camp. July 5th time will tell.
Also tell Drury to stop making Margarita Pizza’s in Trumbull and to fuckin play in Buffalo again cuz he was really good there.
Watch Raycroft cover his face in shame after the goal at 2:18. Straight up remarkable.
