On Brière, what I would like to see is Holmgren call a press conference to announce his buy-out to make plain that this is an unfortunate decision based on the cap situation alone and not one that the Flyers would otherwise do. Add lots of compliments about all that Brière brought to the Flyers in his years here, cite his stellar playoff numbers, talk him up as the important member of the team for his time here, and wish him the very best in his future career.
In other words, don't treat him like a bit of merchandise you're moving from the back shelf, but as someone who gave his all in your uniform.
Invite Brière to be there, if he wishes.
Of course, the problem would be the contrast with the scene if (when) Bryzgalov gets bought out.

Agreed and there was a time when you could almost guarantee that would happen. After watching Gagne get jettisoned, I'm not confident the Flyers would do anything of the sort now.
Not to mention saying that Danny is a victim of the salary cap means Holmgren has to admit publicly how badly he's screwed up cap management.
