The reason why the Montreal Canadiens couldn't choose Danny Brière for the general manager has been revealed. The Philadelphia Flyers had big plans for Brière as they hired the former superstar as the special assistant to the GM.


The 44-year old Brière, who retired after the 2014-15 season, ironically as a Montreal Canadien, will be involved in all aspects of the club's hockey operations, including scouting and player development. He joins the Flyers operations staff after being five years with the Maine Mariners of the ECHL, most recently as team president.

Brière was one of the most popular players during his tenure, Brière is so hockey smart, he's got a bright future and will likely end up being named the Philadelphia Flyers general manager one day.
