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.
I think, he essentially signed for the same money that had been offered in Pit. I believe that being a permanent # 3 and opportunity to play with the brother affected his decision more than money.
