I expect Pitts will soon adopt Van's internal salary structure which Gillis based off Lidstrom and Detroit.
Their is basically 4 different tiers for the core players.
Franchise guys - Sedins @ 6.1M
2nd tier - Edler, Kesler @ 5M
3rd tier - Bieksa, Burrows, Garrison, Hamhuis @ 4.6M
everyone else <4M
Malkin should settle for Crosby's 8.7M. Saving 2M here and there will allow Shero to ice a much stronger team.
