You started seeing it with the Pens this past year... Jordan Staal wanted to get paid and they had to ship him off. What happens when Malkin wants his next payday. Can't give out another Crosby like contract, I think (don't quote me) it is no longer a valid contract with the new CBA.
Every team with a decent amount of talent is going to have problems. Unless 3rd/4th liners take a sizable paycut...which is the scenario the NHLPA hoped to avoid by fighting the contract term limits.
