“I met with Danny last week and informed him of our decision to use a compliance buy out on his contract. This was a very difficult decision for us to make as Danny has been a very good player for us over the past six years. Danny came to our organization as a free agent in July of 2007 and has been a tremendous player, person and role model in all aspects and for that we thank him. We wish him continued success and best wishes in any future endeavors.”
I’ll always remember the time I wrote an entire post about Danny Briere’s hands.
We’ll see Danny in a few years, when he’s given a lifelong ambassadorship with the Flyers.
