I know Briere is small but he brings more offense and with Gaborik gone, we certainly could use more offense. It would also help the PP. I love what Callahan brings but Briere is by far a more offensive threat than Callahan. Bump Callahan down to the 3rd line and get him a decent 3rd line center to play with. In the new NHL you cannot look at the 3rd line as if it is a checking line. It isn't a demotion for callahan. It just means you have much more depth.
I don't think teams are realistically willing to trade for Pyatt.
On Clowe - I think his demands will be reasonable, and if not, then they need to find a way to integrate more sandpaper into the top-9 in some other form.
On Briere - He is very injury prone. That is a major issue and he is undersized. On top of that, he can't play center anymore. I have a feeling he will be overpaid by someone. I also hate him......
On Pyatt - I think there would be a team out there willing to move a later round pick for him considering the absolutely crappy UFA options available.
