The way it seems, Buffalo isn't close to contending and are going to rebuild. They can have Briere for 3 million next year and 2 the next to be a role model for these young players you bring in like Grigs and future draft picks.

You would still get the value of Vanek, just plus Briere in the trade.
That requires another team wanting Briere at his cap hit.
it is unlikely the sabres would be willing to do such a favor
