They got money. He is their team. He is worth more for them then anyone else.

In Pittsburg Crosby is the guy. Jordan Staal won't be cheap. Marc-Andre Fleury won't be cheap. These guys are still really young, and its defenitly possible that they will commit to pretty cheap longterm contracts untill they are 26-27. But I also think there are some potential to steal Malkin before that. If Crosby gets lets say 8m per season, could they match a 10m/per, 5 years offer for Malkin? That could leave them in a situation were they would have to choose between gooing with 2 mega stars with bad surrondings, or a team lead by Crosby and great backup.

BTW, there wasn't a individual cap in the CBA? There were talk, but did they get it in? I don't remember hearing about it, could be wrong though...

Its probably just wishful thinking and daydreaming on my part, but I would love to see it happend!
There is an individual cap in place. It's 20% of the cap on any 1 player. So if the cap were to be raised to 50m in the next year or two, the player cap would be 10m.
