The good thing about those 2 years is actual salary is 3 & 2 million.

We will most likely not be a cap team during that time, and when we are, Briere will expire. The cap hit means nothing to us at all.

3 million is actually a very solid salary for a veteran wing putting up .5 ppg. Hes also not physical, nor does he rely on athleticism to score, meaning he has a few more productive years left.

And it's not like hes stunting anyone's development on the wing. We've had Erik stone hands Condra on the top line more than once this season.

Lets be honest…Bishop doesnt have room in our future plans. He serve his purpose last year and held the fort down, good...but Lehner is already better and like 4 years younger.
