You missed the point sir.

Even though Saku has never reached his maximum potential because of his knee injury (Thank you very much Jeff Shantz) he has produced every single year. Not astronomical numbers, but numbers comparable to many 1st line centers accross the league and considering the supporting cast he had during the dark Houle era I think he did pretty well for himself.

Briere has posted similar or inferior numbers to Saku over the years and now at 28 years of age he earns more than Saku. Considering all the intangibles Saku brings to a team (courage, leadership, determination) I am very happy we can have him at this price for 3 more years (correct?).
