True, I had forgotten about Malone. And Scuderi went to L.A. this year as well, so I suppose you're right and the days of playing for less are by the wayside.

However, the Briere thing irks me. We all know how Montreal puts players through the wringer and that many players can't take that kind of pressure. Even Philly is marginally better than that, what with 3 competitive sports teams which spreads around the love a little more. I imagine that it was THIS that put Briere off playing in MTL, not the prospect of playing for Philly....
