Top hockey players don’t make anything close to what top basketball, football, or baseball players make. That being said, the NHL isn’t exactly the MLS. The salary cap for 2014-15 is a healthy $69 million, while every player in Major League Soccer combined will make just $115.3 million. So when it comes to earning power, hockey players are still in another league, to use an oddly accurate sports analogy.
Who will make the most money in the upcoming 2014-15 season? That’s the subject of today’s list. Take a look and find out. At the end of the day, most of us would rather be LeBron James than Sidney Crosby. But as you’ll see, being Sidney Crosby would be pretty awesome.
