I think your statement is extremely exagerated. Gainey said the Habs wanted to add a superstar to the lineup, and you can't have a superstar without a superstar salary. The good thing with Vinny is that his cap hit is low compared to the max he could get (which he will get, but front loaded). If Gainey was ready to offer Brière a cap hit of 7 mil, you really think he wouldn't want Vinny at 7,7 mil$??
I don't think it's the annual salary that would keep Gainey from touching it, it is the term. I doubt Gainey would want to inherit a contract with that many years left on it.
