See, good teams pay their star players. Pittsburgh has their stars locked up, so they look like they're in some sort of dire cap problem to people without context. But if you look at some of the other elite teams, they'll either have to sign their talents and be in a similar position to Pittsburgh, or lose them in FA and feel the repercussions of their losses.
Nylander is so bad. Washington will dump him on waivers at some point.
