I think you make a run at Corey Perry or Alex Semin or Jarome Iginla and if you land one of them, you buyout Briere.

I know there's a lot of negative sentiment around here towards Alex Semin, but every time I watch Voracek or Hartnell shoot the puck on the powerplay from the right circle after a nice feed from G, I think how it would've been a goal if we had a sniper like Semin. I'm also a pretty big fan of advanced statistics/metrics and they tend to show that Semin gets a bum rap for defense/effort despite being pretty decent. He'd be an upgrade from Danny Briere in every way (except leadership).

Obviously though, I think the first target is Perry and there's no explanation necessary there.
