listed salaries were gathered from different sources (The Hockey News, USA
Today, La Presse, Le Droit, Yearbooks, NHLPA, etc.) and while they closely
reflect reality, they are not necessarily exact.
1989-2010 Total DOES take into account the fact that players
received only +/-58% of their salary during the 1994-95 season because of a
strike (48 games played instead of 84). Some players possibly had contracts
stipulating that they were paid despite a strike but we have no information
in that regard.
the 2004-05 lockout, some players
joined various teams in North America and Europe and were paid to do so. It
is not included in the Grand Total because we have no information about the
salaries they made in those leagues.
players have two-way contracts and have received lower salaries than those
listed when playing in farm clubs.
Salaries paid in Canadian currency by Canadian teams, in the early 90s, were
converted to $US as per the January exchange rate of the given seasons.
