There's nothing wrong per se with having that depth element on your roster, so long as it's not at a salary which makes it too much of a luxury. I think a $1.4M cap hit is too much for that. And I think we're in some trouble if we still have a use for him next year. Surely we can find somebody better/cheaper in that spot than Brisebois. (Including some of our current players like O'Byrne).

So I think it's fair enough to say he was worth having this year, but it's also fair to fervently hope that he's not back again next year.
bang on!
