    Brian Burke's salary is about $3M and I guess he's one of the best paid GMs:

    One former GM in the last 5 years made about 600K in base and about ~150K in other compensation (bonus but not directly tied to performance) along with additional perks such as a team car, expense account, season tickets to everything in the arena.

    Overall, not a bad gig:D

    How much teams pay GMS and Coaches is one of the most closely kept secret for some teams

    A few teams offer coaches around 100k$ a year and Gm can make up to 4mill a year

    when Gretz was the coach in Phoenix and it came out how much he got per year--every coach and GM chocked on their breakfast--
