Since the deal is front loaded it would be relatively cheap to buy out the contract(he makes 3M and 2M in the last 2 seasons) so they can have 6.5M in capspace.
I don't see the Flyers buying out Briere, not while he still is playing at the level he was last year. Briere is a pretty good player to have and since we don't know what the new CBA will look like, I would guess that Briere would get somewhere in the neighborhood of what his cap hit is now. It would probably be pretty darn easy to trade Briere at the deadline if the Flyers for some reason that would boggle my mind decided to do that, in my opinion.

How many teams wouldn't want one of the most prolific playoff goalscorers of the last few years to add to their roster if they had the cap space?
