When a player is bought out, the team still takes a cap hit for the player over a period of twice the remaining length of the contract.

Thats what capgeek says for the new CBA rule. If you dont take any cap hit bryzgalov is gone and so is briere without even a second thought.
capgeek buyouts are for regular buyouts, not amnesty buyouts. Briere will still get paid the same way he would if it was a regular buyout (2/3rd what is left, spread out over double the years left), however it doesn't count against the cap
