Your First Rounder should do it!

Pretending I'm Holmgren: I would start out trying to trade Briere and a 3rd for your first this year at the deadline. I probably wouldn't get anywhere since Briere is having a pretty awful year, but I'd try. After a couple days of that I'd say screw it and I'd take a 2nd for him. At this point I'm pretty happy with that if it gets Briere to a playoff team and gets us some sort of resouce we can use.

As for amnestying him. If Perry is out there, I think there's an alright chance that happens. Not that I think Perry is neccesarily what this team needs, but there's worse moves to make if Holmgren decides to go in that direction.

He's 35 years old. Does anyone need any other explanation? It's been painfully obvious during these past two seasons that age has caught up to him.

I would hand him over for free. He is at the top of the amnesty list so if they gave him away they would save having to pay him the remaining 2 years of his salary.

Does briere & 3rd round pick get Gardiner outta Toronto? He is in the leafs doghouse and they haven't made playoffs in forever so briere's late season/playoff performances of years past could be very enticing to the leafs.

It actually could be a win-win for both teams/players.

They'd be idiots to move a young player for an aged player in the midst of his decline.

Bishop straight up once Andy returns.

Danny could get going in Ottawa as you guys have the team game to cover his defensive lapses.

Agreed! Ottawa is a good fit for Briere because he was born in Gatineau, QC very close to Ottawa.

The sens have 3 good goalies and need scorers.

IMO I prefer Lenher over Bishop...

I don't see Ottawa as a good fit because when completely healthy(next year) they will have Spezza/Turris/Zibby down the middle. I feel like a team getting Briere will most likely want to play him at center to optimize his offensive output, especially during the playoffs. I just don't think it makes too much sense from Ottawa's POV.

I dont think next year plays into any plans for a team getting Briere. With so little owed to him, he is getting bought out this summer regardless. Sens should be out of it by now, but they play a damn good team game and adding Briere this year could really help their offense .

Briere is being undervalued here. I mean if Paul Gaustad is worth a first at the trade deadline, Briere should get a first ++ if he is traded. After the playoffs, if the team doesn't want to keep him, they can amnesty him.

Did PG have a NMC and a 6.5mill/yr cap hit?

I do not care how,when or where. But Danny will not be on this team next year. He clearly has hit the wall and if he really was a team player he would let the Flyers at least get some value in return for the millions they are paying him. We could be so lucky if he did waive his clause.

Why do so few seem to realize Briere will not have a 6.5 cap hit once he's traded.

Gaustad garnered a 1st in a poor draft year, and his pre-trade play wasn't putrid. Holmgren really only has reputation to sell with Brière.

Putting myself in that vast collective, may I humbly ask for an explanation, please? On quick Google checking, I couldn't find anything on cap recalculation after a trade.

In the new CBA is the hit reduced to the average of the remaining years? That makes Luongo a much more interesting trade option (from a fantasyland, hypothetical point of view).

I will say what others are thinking...he DOES have the cap hit after he is traded. It's his actual salary that is 3 mill then 2 mill.

I PRAY we are able to trade him for assets. Same with Feds, Knuble, Foster, even Gagne. I offer Gagne a team friendly contarct for 2 years. If he says no, trade him for an asset BETTER than a 5th rounder. Boston just lost Kelly for at least a month...they will be shopping.

No he didn't, he only had 17 points and a $3,250,000 cap hit a long with 8 points in 38 career playoff games. Again, that's why I said that any team who didn't want him past the season can use their amnesty on him

Not that I don't agree with everything your saying but Gaustad only had 17 points in 56 games. His biggest asset is that he's a big center that is good at faceoffs. That's pretty much all you will get out of a player like Gaustad though

The Flyers could do with another center who was good at faceoffs. They only have Giroux.

I have been a big fan of Brieres but I have to say it is time for him to go. I don't blame him as much as having to play the wing but he also doesn't seem to have that drive and you can't just "take offe regular season then wanna play in the play-offs. He's getting knocked around and has become weak on his skates so regretfully I have to agree with the majority and trade him (if he waives his clause) or amnesty him in the off season.

When you see him play, he sucks completely, but he still managed to get two scoring opportunities, so I don't know what to think anymore. For years I wanted him to be traded and I still do, but I can't decide how bad he actually is.
