I bet you it took you 30 seconds to open up your browser, come to hfboards.com, open up this forum, open up this thread and see this. For some people like Jaromir Jagr, they would get paid $44877 in 30 seconds of NHL action. The players are grossly overpaid. Lets take someone like Jagr for instance who played 77 games last year and averaged 15:55 minutes per game. If you divide his 11 million dollar salary by his 77 games by his 15:55 minutes, you'll discover that he gets paid $149.59 for every second of hockey he plays in the NHL. $149.59! $150 per second to play hockey! I wish I could get paid $150 per second in whatever I do.
