10 years, $90M for Crosby?

@FriedgeHNIC reports on Satellite Hotstove Crosby will likely get something close to 10-year deal near July 1. Could be $9-million cap hit.

Don't see how a $300k AAV increase to Crosby means that JStaal cannot be signed.

In fact, it seems like the exact opposite -- IF Crosby were signed to a cap hit like that, with the ceiling increasing substantially since he signed his current 5-year deal, that increases the chances considerably that Staal is extended.
