2x NHL All-Star

Honourable Mention: Doug Jarvis (1975, TML)

Nobody really stands out too much at this slot. Briere is the best of a pretty mediocre bunch. He was a solid offensive player in the regular season who always elevated his game in the playoffs. He led the league in playoff scoring the year Philadelphia lost to Chicago in the finals. Jarvis gets honourable mention simply because he holds the record for most consecutive games played (964).
