He got paid what he deserves, and i'm glad for that because if he wanted, he could have got a lot more.
Malkin's contract should not be compared to contracts made prior to the new CBA, but to contracts made after the new CBA. Perry & Getz contracts for example. So considering this and the amount of money he could have made as one of the top players in the league, I would consider it a discount.
