Eberle/Hall are already making 6 a year, I assumed Yakapov and RNH will be at similar level or better and will get same or more money. Can't have that much money tied to 4 offensive players with cap that will be $60-$65 Million. They need a goalie and Dmen to contend, those aren't cheap.
Even Pittsburgh, Crosby has a cap hit of 8.7 Million with a salary of 12 Million. In 2 years what is Malkin going to ask for, actual salary something close to crosby will Pitt want a 10 Million cap hit? Another team will give him what ever the new max is. A smart GM would have to let him go to build a whole team, not something top heavy.
I like dynasties, hard cap almost guarantees you can't have one.
