And how do you plan to get Briere to waive in the offseason?

Scenario #1: Briere waives his MNC and gets traded to one of the handful of teams who would value his contract (high cap hit, low salary). He makes $3 million next year, and $2 million the year that follows.

Scenario #2: Briere refuses to waive, knowing that the Flyers have to buy him out. He cashes his check for $3.5 million and then signs with whomever he likes. He makes more money, and gets to choose his destination.
