Jaromir Jagr - Top 25 NHL Fortunes

Jaromir Jagr still leads the Top 25 NHL fortunes accumulated since 1989, with nearly $US118M. Did you expect Shea Weber to be 6th and, more importantly, how is your 401k/RSSP doing?

Mario Lemieux - Wayne Gretzky - Mark Messier

Mario Lemieux had the highest NHL base salary but Wayne Gretzky led the NHL with 142 points and, by far, had more lucrative endorsement deals. They were the only 2 NHLers making over a million a year in base salary.

Wayne Gretzky - Mario Lemieux

Mario Lemieux, who missed most of the season, won his first Stanley Cup while falling behind Wayne Gretzky as the best-paid NHLer. 7 players were now making more than a million per season, up from 2 the previous year.

Wayne Gretzky is still the best-paid NHLer but his LA Kings are eliminated in the first round while Mario Lemieux wins a second Stanley Cup in a row. There are now 16 NHLers making more than $1M per season.
