A list of the highest paid players for next season

From Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News:

The Hockey News had salary rankings in their most recent edition, and I was struck by who is makng the most money next season. While the old structure overpaid players who were 30-somethings, the new system seems to overpay players who are younger and who hit free agency at just the right time.

The rankings are based solely on salary for next season, and some players have a lower cap hit, but does anybody else see inequities with these Top 10s?


Miikka Kiprusoff _ Calgary _ $8.5 million
Henrik Lundqvist _ NYR _ $7.75 million
Roberto Luongo _ Vancouver _ $6.75 million

These numbers are significant to a point; however, as Heika points out, they do not take into consideration the annual charge against the cap that teams have to incur.
