Daniel Briere is considering hanging up the skates at 37 years old.
"At some point, you have to take a step back and analyze everything. I will not take the decision alone," Briere said in reference to his three sons. "I just missed two seasons of their hockey, two years of school where I was not there to help them." Briere, a veteran of 973 career games with Phoenix (now Arizona), Buffalo, Philadelphia, Montreal, and most recently Colorado, has been a reliable scoring threat from October to June throughout his career. Briere has amassed 307 goals and 696 points during the regular season, but it's his 53 goals and 116 points over 124 career postseason games that nets the Gatineau, Quebec native his notoriety. If he does come back, it'll likely have to be for a lot less than his $4M salary and cap hit he enjoyed the last two seasons once free agency begins on July 1st. Briere will be 38 in October.
