The Islanders would be a good fit.

I said it before, try and trade him first to save one of the buyouts. If he refuses to go, then buy him out. You don't know until you try, so we should try to see what teams would like his veteran presence at the cost of his contract. Buffalo rings a bell. Florida/Edmonton and similar teams like that seem like somewhat good fits. Maybe even Nashivlle.
It's pretty obvious that Homer would try to trade him first.

Also, doesn't he have to be placed on waivers first before we buy him out? Maybe we'll get lucky, and someone will pluck him off waivers beforehand and won't have to amnesty him. I know for regular buy-outs, the player has to clear waivers beforehand, but I don't recall if that's the case for amnesty buy-outs (but I think it is)

No, there aren't waivers in the offseason. I'm about 90% sure one that.

I don't think waivers go into place until the season actually starts.

This is more of an amnesty question I suppose but if briere did waive his NMC to go to a cup contender this season and that team amnesties him after the playoffs to get under next years cap, could the flyers then be allowed to sign briere this off season to a lower cap hit?

if so, couldn't there have been a handshake/wink between briere, flyers and new team in order to entice briere to waive his NMC?

Briere may have refused to waive his NMC but he'll be waiving his hand bye bye regardless.

I mean I wish we could keep him and I'm not exactly a detractor but fiscally he's a dead man skating...

Appreciate his years here nonetheless and how he conducted himself on and off the ice....I'm also glad my wish of Gomez over him didn't come true!

I've read several times that compliance buyouts can only be used on SPCs under contract at the end of the lockout--in other words, a traded player can't then be bought out, with the logic being that it is a mechanism to address unforeseeable consequences from the decline in the salary cap. But I've never seen an authoritative source on that.

I honestly don't see any incentitve for the Flyers to do that. Briere was a good player on and off the ice for this organization but he's been pretty brutal the last two years and only getting older. It's time to part ways. I think a buy-out is more likely and once he's gone it's for good.
