I'm not as certain about Briere because he wasn't as front and centre at the draft, but guesstimates on Lecavalier's next contract are around the five-year, $25-million mark. That said, there are a couple of executives who said they wouldn't be surprised if a team asks to bump that up to seven years with the last two at lower salaries to lessen the cap hit. It's also expected that Lecavalier will ask for no-move or no-trade protection.
Wow, someone could end up signing a really solid player for a sub-5m cap hit. Unbelieveable.

If Lecavalier is willing to go 1m per on two bogus years at the end, his cap hit goes sub-4m. Just unbelieveable on today's market.

27 / 7 = 3.85m per

Slats gotta go in on Lecavalier if he could be had for sub-4m per.
