Sorry, but the comparisons of the players to the "average joe" is so... wrong, it's not funny. It's not even comparing apples to oranges, more like comparing apples to alien microbes. Of course the "average joe" wouldn't roll over and take a cut to his $50,000 / year job because he may not even be making ends meet as it is. Yet the average NHL salary IN ONE YEAR is the equivalent of 40 years of the "average joe's" salary. That's an entire working career, and then some. For ****s sake, can people stop using this comparison...
