I read an interesting article and thought it could contribute to this debate, seeing as how some people view hockey player's as whiners about their bank accounts:
The average NHL salary is $2.4 million. The median salary however -- the 50 per cent mark on the salary list -- is about $1.4 million.
It is those players, the bulk of whom make less than $1 million, who make up better than one-third of the union.
The average hockey team is now worth $240 million, 5% more than last year due to a 5% increase in revenue during the 2010-11 season, to an average of $103 million per team.
[O]ver half of all NHL players play less than 100 games in their career. Four per cent -- that's 1-in-25 -- reach 1,000 games. The average NHL career lasts for 5.62 seasons. But the median career -- the 50 per cent point of all NHL careers -- is actually just four seasons.
The average NHL career spans 238 games. However the median career lasts just 86 games. That's barely more than one 82-game regular season for half of all NHL players.
