Brieres cap hit may be high at 6.5, but people act like he's bringing the team down. He still almost averages a point per game and when he comes back and you put him with our power play it will be insane. Every year free agents make more and more. Eventually 6.5 will be a bargain.
Compared to others, 6.5 is good. Look at Drury(7), Gomez(7.3), and Redden(6.5).
The contracts players are going to sign the next two years will drop considerably. The cap is almost definitely going to stagnate this coming summer, and will likely drop the following year when the economy catches up with season ticket sales.
