*Like literally every player that plays here, Danny Briere loves Philadelphia. Here's his opening statements from his retirement press conference, for your enjoyment. [Flyers]

*Briere is very often described as a class act. Here's why. [Courier-Post]

*Despite playing for several other teams during his career, Briere fit best right here in Philly. [Daily News]

*The Flyers will give Danny a proper send off before their game against Buffalo on October 27. [Flyers]

*Bruins fans don't like Danny Briere though, lol. They probably hate everything fun like even chocolate candy and Jon Stewart. Weirdos. [Stanley Cup of Chowder]

*Next up in our 25 Under 25 is Petr Straka, who is heading into what will likely be a make-or-break year for him. [BSH]

*Meltzer has some good stuff on Sean Couturier here. [Hockeybuzz]

*So Adidas insists on adding its trademark three stripes to pretty much anything it manufactures. This will soon include NHL jerseys. Let's see what that might look like. [Uni-Watch]

*There are still quite a few relatively talented free agents available. []

*This is a really good look at how aging impacts your team. [Canucks Army]

*And finally...I'm not sure there are words to describe this. Star Wars. NHLers. Just...just go look at it. [TSN]
