#71 Patrice Brisebois 2007-08

A couple of things I'd like to reply to from the old Brisebois thread:

didn't carbo or gainey say that noone would be waived? it's going to be interesting that's for sure.

If that's the case, say goodbye to Gorges and O'Byrne, because they are the only two who don't need to pass through waivers

We did not sign Brisebois as a free agent to waive him or buy him out. I have not doubt that he will be in Montreal this season. In which capacity? Time will tell. I truly don't understand people trying to raise a stink over him even before the season starts. It will be a long winter for some if things keep going this way...

That wasn't why they signed him ... but circumstances change. Maybe at that time they thought they could move Dandenault or Bouillion, or more likely maybe they didn't realize Gorges, Streit, and O'Byrne would all be having excellent camps, or maybe if it weren't for Chipchura performing so well, Streit would be a forward, or there's a whole lot of things that could have changed between then and now. I think he was signed for insurance, but now that he's not needed, I do think he will be waived tomorrow.

And I'm not raising a stink over him, if Gainey can move Dandenault and Bouillion (which I doubt) - then I'm fine with him. I'm simply saying that I don't see where there's any room for him, and I think he'll be the odd man out and end up on waivers.

I'm not a big fan of Breezer but I am willing to give him a chance here.

Says a lot about his character to come back to a city that boo'd him out.

I hope the best for him this season because his success means success for the team.

he look juste old time!really bad on one goal.he try to pase torelance the attack an a sens took the passe and scorres!!

That was his first shift in almost a year! Let's cut Brisebois some slack here. He had a pretty decent game considering how long he's been on the shelf. I think he still has something to contribute.

I agree. That play was purely misfortune. From what I had heard, he played a pretty decent game otherwise. If anything the goal was as much Huet's fault as Brisebois' fault. And let's be honest, this is what pre-season was for. To work out all of the kinks. I hope Brisebois has a good road trip to start the season!

I have to agree with Weep on this one...I think you're going to see a revived and (to a degree) improved Brisebois over the course of the season. He'll be a great addition to the club both on and off the ice IMO; providing a good example for the young kids in the dressing room.

No judgements until he gets back into game shape (say 10-20 games).

Hopefully he can stay injury free; though I would be surprised.

Overall, I wish him good luck this season!

Not as bad as many expected... but not good either... A few terrible mistakes.

Funny, Carbonneau said that he played a good game... who to believe I wonder. :P

Bonne chance, Patrice Brisebois. Took a lot of guts to come back and play for Montreal. Wouldn't if be something if Bob Gainey brought Patrice back as to show the hockey world that if Patrice could come back and be a part of the success that Montreal will enjoy this year then Montreal is not such a "terrible" hockey club/city to play for? (quite the run on sentence there, eh?) Just excited....

Are we good enough to afford that luxury? I f he costs us a couple of pts in that 10-20 games will it matter.He needs to be doing 5-10 games in Hamilton to see how it goes.I wouldn't worry about putting him on waivers

If this, if that. Why not let the guy play instead of trying to predict the future?

The whole draw for me on the Breezer situation is the "what's next" factor.

I'm really curious to see how the fans respond to him, in regular game situations as well as if he makes a mistake out there.

I'm hoping people will give him a chance.

He's not the worst player we've ever had, hell, I'd rather have Breezer on the team than Belak.

Wasn't that the game where he fanned on the pass, leading directly the Alfredsson goal?

I agree that was a terrible mistake, BUT, we have a few things to take into consideration. His timing was certainly not going to be sharp after over 6 months of not playing hockey, and he played the rest of the game fluently and quite frankly very well.

For Patrice to only have one brain cramp in a game, even after surgery, groin injury and a lengthy vacation from the game, id say its already a step in the right direction for him and for us.

We can't qualify a whole game with one play. Also, we must take into account the ice quality (or lack of there off) for bouncing pucks, etc... I'm not a huge Brisebois fan, never been, never will be, but what I do believe in is giving him a fair chance and bash the boo-birds, that I strongly believe in... if only it was permitted.
