Since you'd likely get a 2-year deal for ~7-8M, you'd actually end up earning about 5-6M more than you would with us!
OR, you could accept a trade to a team WE want to send you to, and you'll make less money. How's that sound?"
It's possible that the Flyers could trade Briere, the other team would buy him out since the cost isn't prohibitive and Briere would re-sign with Philly. Win-win.
