I'd assume this would be exactly how Holmgren sets it out, hopefully while exploring Brière's trade value with other clubs. On the surface, it would seem to be a catch-22: the only clubs who would be interested in his contract would be cap-floor clubs that aren't enticing from a competition point of view. I wouldn't even fathom a guess what Brière's trade value on his own would be.
