Best and Worst NHL Player Values of 2008

In today’s Canadian Business Online, writer Andy Holloway gives a brief rundown on the numerous ways that the NHL seems to have made gains in the U.S. this season, summarizing the positive situation with renewed television contracts, the increasing criticisms of traditional sports networks for non-athletic sports broadcasting, and even mentioning NHL.com’s record-setting online numbers from earlier in the week.

Also included in the article was a link to CBO’s annual assessment of the best values in the NHL:

Canadian Business Online put the NHL to the test to find the players who offer the best mix of high performance and low cost. These are the best value players. They’re not necessarily hockey’s most skilled in absolute terms — nor are they always the cheapest monetarily — but it’s the dream team for fans and cash-strapped owners.

And who are the worst value players?

Includes charts and slideshows. Data current to April 6, 2008.
