Bryzgalov and Briere are the only two viable buy-outs. Neither can realistically be traded at this point--the chance with Briere passed at the deadline--and both carry huge cap hits for multiple seasons.

Mezsaros is fine. If he's hurt next year, he goes on LTIR and they sign a depth replacement in season--and let him walk after the season. If he plays well, you might be able to flip him for a pick in season, or simply ride him until season's end and reevaluate. The space from his cap hit isn't that useful, and signing someone who is a clear upgrade--if such a player is available--complicates things for the year that follows.
