Well the whole point of the salary cap is to get League parity, so we shall see what happens here. I think it's inevitable that Crosby and Malkin are broken up eventually due to the cap system.
That said it sure does help they managed to sqeeze in Crosby's contract in before the new CBA, so anything is possible. Pens management did a good job here.
