Briere just did not click with Therrien that sort of thing happen. The Habs had too many centres anyway and not enough decent RW especially since Gionta is gone. So Bergevin really let Gionta go in favour of a guy 20 pounds heavier three inch taller and three years younger. And he got that guy by trading somebody who cost nothing to get since it a UFA signing.
