Briere talks about Leino

I had a chance to chat with Danny Briere about the Sabres signing of Ville Leino, who was Briere's linemate in Philadelphia.

"The fans are going to love him," Briere said by phone. "I know personally I loved playing with him. He's a very creative player, very strong on the puck, exciting to watch. He's a clutch player, as you guys have seen in the playoffs.

"It's disappointing for me to see him leave but I'm happy that he's going to a place I know very well and a place he's going to be appreciated."
