The Briere contract is right up Wang's alley and his continued battle with getting to the cap floor while paying the least amount of actual money he can. Viz is probably a 50-50 change of coming back anyway this off-season.
Again not a fan of moving Viz but it would get us a legit #2 center and for a guy that we may loose anyway not to mention the "atractive" contract that Briere has currently.
Just a thought
I like it. It makes us stronger if we can get a solid defensive defenseman to replace Viz and have Line 2 hold the puck in the offensive zone better. It gets Nielson on line 3 which helps....resulting in fewer GA's.
