If we assume 40 is average than over 30 years they will earn 1.2 million if the hockey player makes 500k for 2 years than makes an average of 60k for 10-15 he is looking at a minimum of 1.6 million and has only worked 12 years to the average joe's 30 years.
I didn't mean it in a literal sense of "average" Joe and dollar for dollar equivalence. I just meant that some typical workers are comparable (in wages) to lower tier players. I mean a welder in Ft. Mac clears 100K easy, and it's not like a welder is this glorious job. A welder seems like an average Joe.
