I found that interesting that Briere would only want a 1-2 year deal. Most players in at his age would want longer term for security. So my two thought/questions are:
1. Is he broken enough where he wants to try to win the cup for another year or two and then retire?
2. Does he want to re-sign with the Flyers at a lower cap hit in a year?
If this were the case it seems that Pegula bucks could lure him here for a year. High signing bonus with salary (we have the cap space)- trade him at the deadline to a contender for a 1st round draft pick.
I know I'm on this topic ("buying" draft picks) too much, but it's just a way to add assets, seeing that we can't trade up to elite picks or suck enough to be there.
