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.
With the way the market is, I think Clowe will get paid his demands by someone.

I know the issues with Briere. That is why you only sign if the contract is reasonable. If not you move on.

Pyatt - You said move him for a tougher, quicker winger. I don;t think that's possible. I think it is more reasonable to get a mid round draft pick for him like you said.

I think the Rangers bring in Mason Raymond and put him opposite Callahan on the 3rd line. I also like Filppula and Stalberg as an option if they miss on Raymond.
I'd like to look at Elias, Connolly, and Koivu. Realistically I think you see Maholtra, Gordon, and Weiss
I think if you trade Pyatt, I'd consider Torres, Nystrom, Latendresse, and Fedotenko for 4th line LW.

My wish list would look like this for the forward corps with the Rangers buying out Richards (I am not considering the cap so bare with me):

I think if you get Briere, Zucc is let go.
I think if you don't get Weiss, you're better off having Richards stay one more year than signing Maholtra or Gordon for the 3rd line center spot.
Raymond and Stalberg add much more speed to the bottom 6 to get in on the forecheck quickly and complete all four lines. (I know I flip flopped stalberg and raymond)
