Gary Bettman probably isn't even aware there actually is a team in Philly, let alone it's mascot isn't the same as the city's MLB team....
That kid Briere is pretty versatile....reminds me of that Lindros kid.
Briere signs 8-year $52 million deal with Phillies (NHL.com)
UPDATE: Off Wing Opinion noticed the same mistake, but on another site. Here's E's explanation of what possibly happened...
More than likely, both NHL.com and SI.com have some sort of automatic process set up where AP wire copy is prepped and posted online without much human intervention. So when I see the same mistake made at both NHL.com and SI.com, that tells me the original mistake lies not with either of those outfits, but probably with the AP itself and the original copy that went out on the wire yesterday.So I take it back NHL....and while you are still a funny funny league. It's not because of this.
