The writing is on the wall for Danny Briere, as he will likely be bought out by the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Philadelphia Flyers will buyout Danny Briere next season. The news was confirmed today via the Flyers' Twitter account.

Although many teams will likely be interested in acquiring the 35-year-old right wing, Briere will determine where he plays next because he will have the money from the Flyers from the buyout to accept a pay cut to play for a Stanley Cup contender next season.

But as not all Stanley Cup contenders need either a right wing or more importantly a forward, his options for teams that he sees as possible contenders next year remains limited.

"Best landing spot" in this case will be defined as a spot where Briere can be a top-six forward, but also have a reasonable chance of winning a Cup.
