I think this depends on a ton of things. For example:

1.) Are we missing the whole season? Howard and Smith are UFAs, several other RFA options

2.) Does Bryz continue to struggle in the KHL?

3.) What is the new cap?

Any move to amnesty Bryz would be sacrificing the short term in order to avoid the albatross that his deal could become down the road. Bryz is likely the best option for next season, but the longterm issues are enough to make them think twice, especially with his NMC and enigmatic behavior.
