At the time, the Flyers were in a situation where they both could afford to overpay, and had to overpay to get a player of his caliber. I don't think they regret it. And given that the other two big name forward FA that year failed miserably to live up to their contracts, I'm ok with having Briere at 6.5.
I dont think you realize that he's scored 94 points in 93 career playoff games. That's over a point per game for his career.

How many active NHL players are over 1.00 ppg over their career in the playoffs?

Answer: 2 . Danny Briere and Sidney Crosby. That's it.

Not to mention he's done it in Philly as well. In elimination games the numbers are even better

Yeah he's worth every penny and the #'s prove it.
