That works in the 90s.
This is not the 90s. If you aren't actually worth what your cap hit is, and it's a large cap hit, you're a detriment. That's a flat out fact, ignoring it doesn't change it. Why do you think everyone is so annoyed with Briere? If he wasn't paid 6.5 million cap dollars he wouldn't be a problem. However, he IS paid 6.5 million cap dollars...and the cap happens to be dropping by about 6 mil next year. Therefore, Briere becomes a pretty big problem. Any expensive player who doesn't play to his value (Exactly like Briere) hinders the team in deeper ways than simple on-ice mediocrity...he hinders the team's ability to sign better players to make up for him; before the Cap, that didn't matter, unless your team was poor. This is how the NHL works in the Cap Era.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
