I think Crosby can ask for anything up to the limit but I don't think he will as he's not that kind of guy. He makes most of his money off sponsors anyway and leaving Pittsburgh will hurt some brand recognition he has built up. This is why I think it's fair to say Malkin/Crosby will still make equal amounts on their next deal and their price will not go up percentage wise.
I believe the rest will be resigned FAR before their contract expires and they won't any time testing the open market. I don't think Shero wants to trade or remove any key members from the best team in the NHL (when healthy).
That said... Fleury, Staal, Letang, Malkin and Crosby are locks and Neal is looking to join that category very soon. It's nice having potentially 5 allstar callibur players on your team!
