Briere Will Be Bought Out
 
New rumor blog> Briere to become a top UFA after Flyers Definite Buyout(e5) Bryz still up in the air,,.> http://t.co/RfGxbrmWWm

He gave it an E5. Just came across my twitter & facebook feed.

I guess I should have titled it differently. Hes confirming that he will be bought out.

Can't buyout till after the finals. I call BS.

Gardner McKay 06-17-2013 10:57 AM

I dunno. I started following him a while ago. Don't really pay attention to his BS any more but this one intrigues me as it makes sense. Would give them room to sign Streit.

E5's are pretty reliable..

Ih8theislanders 06-17-2013 10:59 AM

The one team he can definitely be trusted with is the Flyers. He's got a connection there for sure.

SirPaste 06-17-2013 11:01 AM

Eklund is usually pretty spot on when it comes to the Flyers.

Gardner McKay 06-17-2013 11:02 AM

When it comes to the Flyers he does have sources.

ShootIt 06-17-2013 11:05 AM

Wouldn't mind the Panthers going after him.

struckbyaparkedcar 06-17-2013 11:07 AM

Wonder if he ends up back in Buffalo. He probably makes the team worse while filling a leadership void, which is actually pretty valuable for a Sabres team pondering "suffering" as a means of acquiring top talent.

96 06-17-2013 11:08 AM

This literally can't be true. Stating that Briere will be bought is probably an accurate report. Claiming that Briere has been bought out is literally impossible because the buyout period has not yet begun.

SnS 06-17-2013 11:08 AM

Eklund is an allowed source here, can we just drop the comments that you know are already against the rules. If not warnings / infractions to follow. It happens in every single Eklund thread, just if you don't want to read what Eklund has to say, don't visit the thread.

Can they do it after the cup is won, or do they have to wait until FA begins to buy someone out?

Mats26 06-17-2013 11:18 AM

48 hours after the last game of the finals.

PRetty sure it can be done after the finals are over.

YuioIklo 06-17-2013 11:19 AM

Alright, thanks.

Halibut 06-17-2013 11:21 AM

How is it news? Hasnt everyone in Philadelphia been shouting from the rooftops that Briere would be bought out?

In other news...

Eklund is reporting that the pope is quite likely catholic
Bears **** in the woods
grass is green
the sky is blue

feedingschennzy 06-17-2013 11:22 AM

He wants to go to minnesota

JVR21 06-17-2013 11:23 AM

This has been "definite" since the end of the Flyers' season.

SuperNintendoChalmrs 06-17-2013 11:23 AM

Will he have lunch with Briere and his family as he departs? :D

Shrimper 06-17-2013 11:24 AM

There is a buyout period from the end of the finals to the eve before the free agency starts. If he's bought out it'll be then. But I thought this was well known already?

Reverend Salty 06-17-2013 11:27 AM

Eklund is pretty good on the Flyers. I wouldn't mind seeing Briere in Toronto for a year or 2. We need that veteran presence.

Emerica 06-17-2013 11:29 AM

He gave it an e5?

:scared:

Wouldn't mind him in Ottawa for the right price.

Kershaw 06-17-2013 11:30 AM

My guess is Pittsburgh lets go off Iginla and signs Briere to accompany LW spot on Crosby's line with Dupuis.

I hope the bolded isn't an E5!!

Basically, it has no colour: it is transparent. At night, when the Sun and Moon are below the horizon, it is black, except where the stars shine through it. When the Moon rises, it turns gray: light scattered by the air molecules, but not bright enough to trigger the colour receptors in our eyes. When the Sun is in the sky, it turns blue because of Rayleigh scattering by air molecules. It is still transparent, though, because you can see the Sun and Moon through it, and even bright planets and stars if you know exactly where to look. When the Sun is low in the sky, or just below the horizon, the sky shows various colours due to complex scattering and refraction

And sometimes, my grass is yellow...just sayin

trentmccleary 06-17-2013 11:33 AM

Why would they buy him out?

His cap hit is high, but he makes peanuts. He should have value to a cap minimum team as a veteran scorer.
