We don't know what kind of offers Cammalleri got from other teams.

You have a point, but it's not as cut and dry as you're making it out to be.
It's not, but I seriously doubt Briere signed for much, if at all less than what else was there, and we don't know what else was involved - the NMC for instance, or an affirmation from RDS that he can start trying out for a job for after he retires. That doesn't mean Briere didn't have other reasons - wanting to stay in the east, being from Quebec, getting promised a top 6 role and playing time - of course there's other considerations.

I am very skeptical teams would offer much more for Briere. Nashville is desperate for offense. We should probably be trying to trade them Desharnais.
