PITT has nearly that much tied up in just three players, and they are very much a cup-contending team.

Crosby-Malkin-Fleury -> $22.4M
Chara-Iginla-Thomas-Bergeron --> $23.5M

Yes, I definitely see that the PITT trio is better in terms of talent, but in that foursome you have the NHL's #1 goalie and arguably the NHL's #1 defenceman and two very very good forwards. Not something I'd shake my head at, and I would applaud Chiarelli if he could pull off a trade that brought this foursome together.
