Kukla's Korner Hockey

Rich & Famous in the NHL

From Neil Stevens at CP via the Globe & Mail,

It might come as a surprise to hockey fans to know that seven goaltenders including Colorado’s backup will bank more than Martin Brodeur this season.

Kimmo Timonen, not Nicklas Lidstrom, will be the highest-paid defenceman.  Bryan McCabe will get more than Jarome Iginla, Joe Sakic or Joe Thornton.

And get this: Thomas Vanek’s pay will be more than 10 times Sidney Crosby’s base salary.

There is no simple explanation for all the disparities because there are more than 700 NHL players and the compensation they’ll receive from their teams in 2007-2008, all in U.S. dollars, has in many cases been arrived at differently.
