Danny B has played his final game in the NHL and it’s too bad it was with the Avalanche. All the damage he did against teams throughout his career in the playoffs was fun to watch except against my Rangers in 2007 but I digress. The former 1996 first round pick to the Phoenix Coyotes exits the game without a Stanley Cup. When healthy he was an exciting player to watch and he scored some clutch goals and did the same celebration legitimately every time.
Not to mention the guy put 30 points in 2010 playoffs as a member of the Flyers when they went on to eventually lose to Chicago in the finals.
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.
