Penguins will not do us the favour of taking the Briere contract... I think at this point Briere will not be moved unless teams come calling and give us an offer that forces us to force Briere to waive.

People might say B. Morrow for J. Morrow is a hilarious trade but Morrow scored 33 goals two years ago and he's still only 34 and is a Gold Medal winner. His cost was likely a lot less than other 'better' options (Iginla) and his physicality, experience, grit and leadership made the Pens go after him vs. somebody like Jagr, etc.

I don't think Flyers will do any 'short-term' buying but I could see them making a deal for somebody that could fit into their long-term plans. Unless they win the next 5 straight Holmgren will probably continue his 'not buying' stance.
