Hockey: Briere signs 8-year $52M deal with Flyers
By John Wawrow
Briere signed an eight-year, $52 million contract, immediately becoming the fresh face of the retooled Philadelphia Flyers. The deal came two days after the former Sabres co-captain broke off negotiations with Buffalo, turning down the team's five-year, $25 million offer.
"Danny had many offers and lots of interest out there," Briere's agent, Pat Brisson, said in an e-mail to The Associated Press. "He is thrilled with the results."
