Remember how low the cap was when that deal was signed. Adjusted for cap increases, each would make $10.8MM this year. If they end up getting that raise it's still $4.2MM between the two.

They're both too young to really get "cheat year" deals unless they get more than 10 years, which would be a huge risk for Crosby with the concussions. While I don't think they'll get huge raises, the team will need to expect at least $3MM in raises between the two considering what other free agents have gotten.
