Update 3: According to Arthur Staple, the Islanders are out on Danny Briere.  The Devils are among the finalists for him.

Update 2: According to Pierre Lebrun of ESPN, the Islanders are among 4 teams to show "solid" interest in Danny Briere.  The other three teams are the Devils, Montreal, and Nashville.

Update: According to Newsday, the Islanders are in fact in on Danny Briere.  Briere is expected to name the finalists for his services this week.  Big things for Briere when considering where to go is that he wants a top six forward role and the opportunity to win.

According to Chris Botta, the Islanders are likely to be one of the favorites to sign Danny Briere as a free agent when free agency opens this Friday.

Briere who was bought out by the Flyers earlier this month registered 16 points in 34 games this season for the Flyers.  In 2011/2012, Briere put 49 points in 70 games.

I am not a huge fan of Briere, but I would certainly be interested in him on a one year maybe two year contract.  He would make a solid right winger for Tavares and I think he would put up sixty points in that position assuming he stays healthy.  If they deem a kid is ready to take that spot, Briere is also able to play center.
