it's a hazard of the job.
Which is why players get little clauses put in their contracts that says a team just can't send them anywhere at any time they want. You know, like a NMC.
So again, why should Briere waive it so he can be sent somewhere he doesn't want to go, and possibly be stuck there for another 2 years? He has absolutely nothing to gain.
