BTW, as others have pointed out, Briere's cap hit is 6.5M but his actual contract is much less:

For an example of what I'm talking about, consider Exhibit A the Daniel Briere Contract (I'm not saying the Thrashers will trade for Briere, this is just a handy example of a front loaded contract.)

Year, Actual, Cap Hit
2007-08 $10 $6.5
2008-09 $8 $6.5
2009-10 $8 $6.5
2010-11 $7 $6.5
2011-12 $7 $6.5
2012-13 $7 $6.5
2013-14 $3 $6.5
2014-15 $2 $6.5
