Pronger will stay on LTIR so buying him out is probably not a great move either capwise or fiscally as his contract is probably insured.

Bryzgalov would make the most sense long term but the cost in real dollars will be massive. I think what they might try to do is to trade Briere if they really did want more cap space. He does have the NMC but might waive rather than accepting a buyout. His contract would be very attractive to a team with cap space.
Briere makes more sense then Bryzgalov.
