In a cap world where Perry is has a cap hit of $8.6, Malkin isn't going to accept a cap of $8.7. The internal cap only works when it makes sense. Not saying there's no chance Malkin abides by a limit like that, but it's doubtful. Compared to a year ago, it's a completely different situation for signing star players.
Next few years are going to be interesting to see play out. If teams over commit cap to stars they are going to have terrible depth as the teams with cheaper stars can hover up quality mid-tier players. Should make for some interesting matchups, might help a few of mid salary teams.
