It's a bit misleading to look just the caphit. Total earnings is what matters in players mind.

Crosby is earning 83.4 million in those 8 years (from 2014-15 to 2021-22), when Malkin should sign that maximum length 8-year contract. That means 10.425 million yearly earnings (without any fake cap hit) if he takes the same than Sidney.
