07:15 PM ET 06.19 | After a disappointing season in which he only tallied 16 points, it wasn't any shock that speculation began late in season that the Flyers would use one of their two new amnesty clauses to buy Briere's contract out. After the season it became evident that was the course of action that the Flyers would take, and it was only a matter of time before Briere's deal was bought out. Last night, the news became official. Briere spent six seasons in the orange and black, and the final two years of the eight-year deal will be bought out. The great thing about the amnesty clause is that the Flyers will not take a cap hit with the release of Briere, they still will pay him for the next two seasons, but it will not count against the cap.
