If the cap rises to $83M like Bettman has insinuated, then it's hard to really argue about the dollar amount or the term here. However, Guentzel's success as a point scorer is directly linked to the continued success of Crosby on the PIT top line. Also, Guentzel's playoff success is undeniable. He clearly has the ability to raise his game when the stakes are highest. I'd still look for Rutherford to make another move to add offensive depth so PIT can contend for the Cup once again. Considering how well they play vs. WASH and CBJ it's not a stretch to say PIT could make the Conf. Finals.
