<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Caerii</b></div><div>Yeah but then we're a one line team, and right now you're watching one line teams like Boston and Colorado struggle against deeper teams like NY Islanders and Vegas. And the other "90-100 point centers", Crosby, McDavid, Matthews were all eliminated by teams that relied on more depth than one line of star players.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Lightman13</b></div><div>For the first time ever a team has won a playoff series with a player who makes over 10m. This year it happened with Carey price. First time in cap era. I was very shocked to hear that stat. It’s one reason Boston has been so good for so long. Signing solid players into the 6-8m range long term young. Also why Toronto will never do anything</div></div>

I don't think it's that shocking since the cap has raised every year except for this year. You have to look at percentages for a fairer comparison. The first year the Penguins won the cup, Crosby took up 12.18% of the cap (it was at $71.4M in 2015-2016 according to <a href="https://puckpedia.com/teams" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">puckpedia</a>). Eichel's deal currently takes up 12.26% of the cap which is not that far from Crosby's cap percentage during those cup winning years for the Penguins.

Edit: Also, not quite as close, but Kucherov ate 11.66% of Tampa's cap last year. A closer example is Ovechkin who ate up 12.72% of Washington's cap when the Caps won the cup in 2017-2018 which is more than Eichel's now. In fact, the only team of the last 5 cup winners who <em>didn't</em> have a player eating up more than 11.5% of their cap was the Blues (Crosby's was 11.92% in 16-17). You can absolutely win with Eichel's cap hit.
