I'd expect Bryz and Briere to be buy outs. And Pronger on long-term ir, that frees up some cap space.

Would they move Schenn? Maybe not, but that would be a guy I would target, if I was Chevy. Greater chance he's available than Simmonds or Voracek- even if that chance is remote.
Flyers would still have Giroux, Couturier, Talbot, Rinaldo, Laughton - as C options, which isn't that great (after Giroux). Maybe a C (Slater, Gagnon, or Cormier) would need to go the other way, or they grab one in off-season.

Will be interesting to see moves that are made.

Fair that he's probably more available then voracek or simmonds, but i think the flyers would be more likely to move one of the younger centers you mentioned (couturier or Laughton) then Schenn. Also, that center core is hardly awe inspiring. If they do buy out brier, no chance they move Schenn, as your immediately thrusting either a very unproven young center, or a career third liner into the top 6 center role.

Just think it's likely a pipedream, especailly for a team thats historically been pretty top heavy in its top six offense (at least recently)
