Here's Crosby's contract:

2013-14 $12,000,000
2014-15 $12,000,000
2015-16 $12,000,000
2016-17 $10,900,000
2017-18 $10,900,000
2018-19 $10,000,000
2019-20 $9,000,000
2020-21 $9,600,000
2021-22 $9,000,000
2022-23 $3,000,000
2023-24 $3,000,000
2024-25 $3,000,000

Cap hit 8.7M

People need to understand that with backdiving contracts banned, cap hits will rise. Take out those 3M seasons that Crosby will never play out, Crosby's cap hit is 10.7M

So you can't really compare new contracts to those under old CBA.
