You can trade or waive Mez without using a buyout. Try to trade Briere, should he get healthy, for a 1st round pick to the Bruins. Have plans for the 1st round pick, whether it be using it, or packaging it for a significant upgrade elsewhere. No way you trade both Schenns and Read for 1 player who hasn't taken a shift in the NHL. Not sure what team would want Couts and a 2nd for a pick just to get Nurse. I understand trying to trade for Bernier, but that price seems steep. I would rather shop around. Nor would I trade Hartnell, who is fine. Flyers should be throwing a lot of promises to DeKeyser.
