Pittsburgh also had the fortune of doing their rebuild in draft years where ELITE players were available...guys that come along maybe 3 or 4 times in a whole generation.
The quality of the players in the draft since then has not been quite as good. There are many good players available but not a lot of 100 point potential types like Malkin/Crosby.
