So much for the talk that the Penguins might have to break up their core for cap reasons. I don't know if they had much choice on this, but this contract, along with Crosby's, will carry a close to $20 million cap hit. For two guys. Through 2020. They don't have a ton of other guys locked up long term, but still...that's a lot of eggs in just the one basket. (Side Note: If you really want to see something funny, check out Vancouver's "cap space")
