Can only 1 be done per year ? Or can they both go ths summer ?

I think once Danny knows he's done here, he waives for a contender IMO.

That would be a fine threat that my passive-aggressiveness is enjoying at present, but I don't think the Flyers can play fast and loose with Briere's cap hit.

I know this is the logical, objective context, but the systematic level of suckage begs a reason beyond Briere just having an off year. Maybe an injury, but I thought I'd take a quasi-controversial approach. Even though I didn't believe it myself.

Realistically what can we get for Briere if we trade him at the deadline. The man is a playoff stud. The team that get's him has the cap hit of his remaining contract correct? That means he has a very limited cap hit for the remainder of his contract too.

We better get a first + for him. If this draft is as strong as people are saying, if we can get 2 first rounders, I'm hoping this could be a repeat of 2003.

The org is already "a bunch of deeks" for what they did to richards and carter. We can't realistically do that to a "star" player like briere and not hear about it.

Just buy him out.

I think it's more like he's stinking on purpose so he can get bought out instead.

Thank you, MsWoof. That's an equally valid conspiracy-theory option.

I'm so tired of this. You are allowed to trade players. It doesn't make you a bad guy.

It sure doesn't, but i bet it comes up in contract negotiations.

Just buy him out and don't play "we are going to sit you" games is all i'm saying.

I hear you. My counter point to that would be that it's not a move to leverage him to waive his NMC, or any sort of manipulation at this point. He deserves to be sat, so sit his ass. This is a meritocracy. You'll get some minutes when your play merits it.

Trade Briere and Mez to Long Island for Griffin Reinhart. And hopefully more but get him!! Long Island needs and wants the playoffs and both these players would really help their squad

Yeah act like its not possible. Nyi is in some place the thrashers were. We traded Zhitnik and Coburn. Islanders needing and wanting the playoffs you really don't think that package could get you Reinhart.

I think the last thing they need is another scoring forward who doesn't play defense, and doesn't really score much anymore either. If they're trading for a rental, and they're willing to give up Reinhart, why not go get a #3 defenseman who's a defensive specialist, stay at home type?

I still think in the end he waives for a East contender. Flyes will probably get little in return tho.
Anything more then a 2nd round pick and its a major win IMO

But then he gets bought out. I doubt he wants that.

Maybe he does...if he's bought out he gets the remaining 5 million on his contract. Then some other team will probably sign him for...something. He'd be making more money.

I want you to think about Briere's nature. Think about what his play-off resume looks like. That guy doesn't tank to get bought out.

sorry to intrude, couple of questions on danny briere:
1. How likely is it you guys amnesty him
2. If you dont, how much do you really want in return? Could the sens get him for practically free (assuming he'd waive... but this is his hometown).
