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.
Let's put it this way. As a Rangers fan, I hope the Flyers don't buy out Bryz. He's a playoff choker and a joker, and not to mention an albatross contract.
