I just have to ask this question and clarify a point,

people keep saying Briere's salary is less than his cap hit, but forgive me as I see that he is in line to make 8 million next season and 7 million per for the following 3 seasons, just where in that is his actual contract cheaper than his cap hit?

2009-10 $8 $6.5
2010-11 $7 $6.5
2011-12 $7 $6.5
2012-13 $7 $6.5

edit: I understand the last 2 years are for 3 mil and 2 mill respectivly, I am trying to make a point about the next 4 years.
