The rules are set by Admin team and not the player agent. As far as Crosby goes, his salary is around $8M but with the shorter contract length and higher salary cap, we will see increase in salary for many over $8M. My point is very simple, why do I have to pay NHL cap for 4th line player and players at upper tier are capped at $8M? If we are using NHL cap than why not change the salary structure to NHL. The other alternative is to reduce the cap to $40M and leave the max salary at $8M as was the case in 2005/2006 season.
