End of Season Media: Danny Briere

Below is a transcript of Danny Briere's end of the season session with the media on locker clean-out day ...




Q: Danny, a lot of the questions this morning considering concerned moving forward with the captaincy. Guys talked about Claude in that role…




“Honestly, I told you last summer, I think we make way too much of a big of a deal with it. Whatever they decide here, it’s going to be fine. With have many guys that can assume the role or not, so I’m not worried about it at all.” 



Danny Briere posted eight goals and 13 points in 11 games for the Flyers in the playoffs.

Q: Danny, you weren’t able to come out and talk after the game the other night, can you talk about what you were going through at that point?

“Obviously there was lots of frustration. Especially frustration the way Game number 5 went, I think the Devils we all saw deserved to win, the way they played, the fore-check. In that game, there was a lot of frustration, because I was always – you know, growing up playoff hockey was always about warrior type games and players and there was a lot of frustration with the way that last game was played, with guys staying on the ice left and right and not missing a shift. Before, I said if I go out there and say something stupid, just not talk at this point. But overall, looking at the five games, they deserved it. They played hard, they fore-checked hard, they played it smart.”




Q: Do you think you guys overlooked New Jersey maybe coming off the big win over Pittsburgh. Would Chris Pronger had made a difference in that and maybe have gotten you guys in the right frame of mind if he was here…

“I don’t know. He’s another veteran that’s been through a lot. I don’t know, I never personally felt like this was going to be easy against New Jersey. There was something, I knew it was going to be tight checking and a lot more frustrating than against Pittsburgh. I mean I can’t talk for everyone in the room but I knew it was going to be a tough one. I expected, when people were asking me before, talking to my friends, I thought this was going to go 6 or 7 games. I thought we would come up on top obviously, but I was expecting a long tough series against them. The way they played surprised me.”
