Just to follow up on DanielBriere48's post, if you project Briere's 58pts in 48gms last season to 82gms, you end up with 99pts. That's why he was awarded $5M. Of course, you can argue that that doesn't mean anything if he's injured, but, if you look at his history, he stayed extremely healthy until last year (78, 82 and 82gms played the previous 3 seasons). So, I would not call him injury-prone. He had that abdominal injury last year, but that was the only major injury, and, upon returning from that, he picked up the scoring right where he had left off. I admit that it's hard to think of Briere as a #1 center, but what do you call a 99pt scorer? I wouldn't call that a #2 center.
