I don't think he's getting bought out unless the Flyers want to **** their salary cap up for the next 2 seasons (following the link Invictus provided):

TEXT CAP HIT BREAKDOWN (for copying and pasting)

Danny Briere buyout from
◦ 2013-14: $4,333,333
◦ 2014-15: $5,333,333
◦ 2015-16: $833,333
◦ 2016-17: $833,333

Assuming they can save it for 2 summers, like I think I saw someone else suggest, they still get hit with a $5 million cap hit in 14/15.
