As a percent of the cap, if would be less than what Crosby and Malkin signed for their last contracts.
Alot of certainty in your post. I'd say it's alot closer to 50/50 with Staal than you're willing to admit.

I'd like to see what team pays Parise 10 mil. Yes, players are overpaid in free agency, but that's just outrageous. It's a stretch for a contender to pay him over 7, imo.
