Trade Read for Jonathon Blum, sign Jarome Iginla, and resign Kimmo or Marc Streit (4-5 mil for either)
L.Schenn-Timmonen or Streit
Buy out Briere's last year (if you can't trade him) next summer to sign B. Schenn, Couturier, and Giroux.
If you buy out Briere earlier then you spend a couple mil more and you get Perry over Iginla long term too. The cap will go up slightly the following year so they'll still have enough to re-sign the young guys.
