5M$ for Briere is too much. Are you saying we are cheap because we don't believe his salary is deserved? If you think Briere is a good deal at that price you can debate that if you want but not wanting to overpay for lesser value is not a sign of being cheap.

I pay 9$ bucks for a beer every game I go to, I sure don't think I'm cheap.
the thread asks if habs fans are too cheap, not management. most were unwilling to give him 4M$. as is rumoured, gainey offered him close to 5M$. he probably knows he has at least a good year left in him.

i love how habs fans turn on players that management were pursuing but who didn't sign here. it's always the same thing.
