    Timmy P. has a good point. Elite talent is always going to get paid. But if the average player keeps getting more and more, then the elite player will too. Of course, there are a number of reasons why things have gotten out of hand, this is certainly one of them.

    Klatt at this time was not a 4th liner anymore. He had a 20 goal season and had a stellar playoff.

    The main problem is that the players aren't getting raises from the minimum (still $250 k I think), because nobody gets paid the minimum. Look at THN's Bucks and Pucks issue and if there is any player making the minimum he's an injury call-up from the minors. The salaries listed at USAToday show only 3 players getting less than $300 k. There are as many players making $7+ mil in the NHL as there are making less than $400 k. There are also more rookies making the rookie max than there are making anywhere near the minimum.
