Briere Will Be Bought Out

New rumor blog> Briere to become a top UFA after Flyers Definite Buyout(e5) Bryz still up in the air,,.> http://t.co/RfGxbrmWWm

He gave it an E5. Just came across my twitter & facebook feed.

I guess I should have titled it differently. Hes confirming that he will be bought out.

I dunno. I started following him a while ago. Don't really pay attention to his BS any more but this one intrigues me as it makes sense. Would give them room to sign Streit.

The one team he can definitely be trusted with is the Flyers. He's got a connection there for sure.

Eklund is usually pretty spot on when it comes to the Flyers.

Wonder if he ends up back in Buffalo. He probably makes the team worse while filling a leadership void, which is actually pretty valuable for a Sabres team pondering "suffering" as a means of acquiring top talent.

This literally can't be true. Stating that Briere will be bought is probably an accurate report. Claiming that Briere has been bought out is literally impossible because the buyout period has not yet begun.

Eklund is an allowed source here, can we just drop the comments that you know are already against the rules. If not warnings / infractions to follow. It happens in every single Eklund thread, just if you don't want to read what Eklund has to say, don't visit the thread.

Can they do it after the cup is won, or do they have to wait until FA begins to buy someone out?

This has been "definite" since the end of the Flyers' season.

There is a buyout period from the end of the finals to the eve before the free agency starts. If he's bought out it'll be then. But I thought this was well known already?

Eklund is pretty good on the Flyers. I wouldn't mind seeing Briere in Toronto for a year or 2. We need that veteran presence.

My guess is Pittsburgh lets go off Iginla and signs Briere to accompany LW spot on Crosby's line with Dupuis.

I hope the bolded isn't an E5!!

Basically, it has no colour: it is transparent. At night, when the Sun and Moon are below the horizon, it is black, except where the stars shine through it. When the Moon rises, it turns gray: light scattered by the air molecules, but not bright enough to trigger the colour receptors in our eyes. When the Sun is in the sky, it turns blue because of Rayleigh scattering by air molecules. It is still transparent, though, because you can see the Sun and Moon through it, and even bright planets and stars if you know exactly where to look. When the Sun is low in the sky, or just below the horizon, the sky shows various colours due to complex scattering and refraction

And sometimes, my grass is yellow...just sayin

Why would they buy him out?

His cap hit is high, but he makes peanuts. He should have value to a cap minimum team as a veteran scorer.
