This year you only amnesty Briere. This will give you enough cap space to make imporvments to the team. It will also give Bryz 1 more chance to prove he can be the number 1 and a chance to evlauate if Mason can be a number 1 again. It will also put us in an offseason with better goalie choices for FA... Miller, Hiller, Howard, Lundquist, and more.

He will bounce back. Maybe not to his all-star performance but likely his 25 goal pace. No need to fear the contract, in 4-5 years there will be another lock-out and another amnesty... lol
