Yes but contract $ are now as important in assesing a player's value than their talent level. Ryder for Briere when salaries are equal is highway robbery. Ryder at 2.5M for Briere at 5M is probably a wash (you'll have to argue long and hard to convince me Briere was worth that amount. Maybe if he can put up a whole injury free season at a PPG pace, but he's never done it yet).
