Monday, 23.06.2014 / 3:00 PM canadiens.com

Upon his arrival in Montreal, we mentioned to Daniel Briere that not only was he one of the most sought-after players in the hockey world, but that life forms from other galaxies were also starting to take note of his talents. We told the 36-year-old sharpshooter that in 24 hours, aliens were plotting to snatch him away for observation to help them gain an edge in their future faceoffs against evil. We assume Briere believed us, because he answered our questions about his final day on planet Earth:

Good luck Daniel!
