im likely wrong but someone wanna explain this?
Staal entered the same year as MEV, and would have been UFA the same time as Vlasic, so that's a better comparable. Crosby being UFA next year just means the Pens bought a year of UFA in the contract he has now. I'm not sure how LTIR factors into the games towards an accrued season, but I would imagine it doesn't work against the player if he's injured for half the year.
