The usual fine print: Figures in US$. Salaries paid in Canadian currency by Canadian teams, in the early 90s, were converted to $US as per the January exchange rate of the given seasons. Some players have two-way contracts and have received lower salaries than those listed when playing in farm clubs. The listed salaries were gathered from different sources and while they closely reflect reality, they are not necessarily exact. Of course, that is from their NHL salaries only and it does not take into account any other revenue streams such as endorsements, summer jobs, business ventures, being a Mary Kay independent consultant to supplement revenues, etc. Base salaries are usually shown as bonuses are generally not made public. Totals do take into account the fact that players received only +/-58% of their salary during the 1994-95 season because of a strike (48 games played instead of 84). Some players possibly had contracts stipulating that they were paid despite a strike but we have no information in that regard. During the 2004-05 lockout, some players joined various teams in North America and Europe and were paid to do so. It is not included in the Grand Total because we have no information about the salaries they made in those leagues. Figures shown represent earnings; investment results may vary - ask Sergei Fedorov.

Gretzky & Lemieux Born 10 Years Too Soon!

HockeyZonePlus.com has updated its unique NHL salary history database to include 2009-2010. It is interesting to note where Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux rank in the overall fortunes accumulated playing in the NHL: While Jaromir Jagr is still on top, with nearly $100M, Lemieux is 40th with $48,926,829 while Gretzky is 65th with $40,521,616. Talk about being born 10 years too soon! Not that it would change the lifestyle that much, mind you.

Overall, 30 players have accumulated more than $50M while 151 accumulated more than $25M (if Glen Wesley can make a comeback long enough to justify a $5,000 payckeck, that would make it 152.)

Sergei Fedorov has made $65,519,036 but apparently managed to "invest" and lose most of it.

Who's Better - Roy or Vanbiesbrouck? 20 Years Later, Numbers Speak for Themselves

Twenty years ago, in the 1986-87 edition of the Superstar Hockey Yearbook, there was an article from Norm MacLean entitled "Who's Better? Patrick Roy or John Vanbiesbrouck!"

While it was a legitimate question back then, the answer is quite obvious now that both goalies are retired. Let's just say that the numbers speak for themselves. Hindsight 20/20!

Both Junior hockey team owners, they became coach and general manager of their respective teams: the Québec Remparts of the Québec Major Junior Hockey League for Roy and the Sault Ste.Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League for Vanbiesbrouck. In Vanbiesbrouck's case, it ended in turmoil in 2003 after he made racist remarks about one of his players, the Greyhounds' captain Trevor Daley. He was suspended by the league, apologized, and quit his job. As for Roy, while the junior hockey adventure had its ups and downs, his team won the Memorial Cup in 2005-06.
