“VOORHEES – Ever since Danny Briere signed with the Flyers July 1, 2007, his name has been linked to the word, “classy.” In other cities, it was well before that.

Some question exactly what that means, why it’s warranted.

Is it because he’s nice to the media?


Is it because he’s always got a smile on his face and has the time of day for anyone and everyone?

You bet.

Does it end there?

No way.”
