As for Malkin, Pens fans are hoping he signs for what Sid did, not what he's worth.
Crosby also averages $10.8 million in the first 8 years of his deal. If you want to compare Getzlaf's contract to Crosby's, you need to use that number. Pens lucked out with getting Crosby signed before contract term was limited to 8 years.
