For NHL franchises, players are investments. Sometimes you pay for future performance while other times you reward past glory. It doesn't always work out, and you may end up stuck paying for nothing, or paying too much for just average performance.
Each team has someone they are paying too much for.
Many of these contracts made sense at the time, while others never did. That doesn't mean that the guy cashing the paycheck is a bum. After all, who among us would tell our employer "no thanks, I'm not worth that much"?
We are not here to judge...OK, so maybe we are.
Here is one guy from each team that makes too much money.
I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that there is someone on this list that will anger someone. So feel free to tell me how lame my selection for you favorite team was.
