    It's probably accurate, but still pretty useless since:

    1. It's last season's salaries, not this years.

    2. It is (like most NHL salary sites) the player's actual salaries, not their cap hits.

    I had hopes that the USA Today site would be different - for their NFL salary database, they do break out Salary and Cap Hit seperately.

    A much better site - HF Boards own Irish Blues site:
