You guys do realize if we did Yandle for Briere and Couturier that the entire province of Quebec would start celebration riots in the streets, right? Haha.

Anyway, I doubt Briere waives his NMC to come back here. His kids are in Philly and apparently is ex wife may or may not be the most accommodating when it comes to custody customization to fit his crazy work schedule. Also, it just doesn't make financial sense. He'd be way better off forcing the Flyers to use one of their amnesty buyouts on him. He could pocket that five million they owe him over the next two year and then sign a new deal somewhere near Philly (Jersey maybe?) for probably seven million over those same two years. Takes home twelve instead of five. It just makes sense.

Then again, Couturier may be the ace in the hole in all of this. Couturier has been living with Briere the last two seasons, IIRC. Who knows how that might impact the decision of his mentor?

It's a new dawn, a new day, and the country club is gone, washed away. Thanks to Andy Barroway.
