A little perspective. The money we OWE Bryz not to play is only a little less than what Nashville is paying Weber in bonuses to actually play.
There's a huge real difference between paying $27 million in one year, and paying $23 million over 14 years.
And the Flyers only had till July 4th to use their buyouts, or they would have had to wait till next summer.
