Of course, as I've posted previously, the allure of Brière is probably limited to cap-floor teams, and these are the least likely preferred options for him.
Agreed. OTT (not truly a floor team, in the traditional sense) and NYI are the two that seem to fit best, but I dunno. I think he gets bought out or comes back. A trade seems unlikely in the offseason.
