They are playing in Europe at a fraction of what they make in the NHL. Are they still so great if they make 300,000 rather than 3 or 4 million?

The NHL provides them with a great paycheque plus top venues, charter jets and 5 star hotels, the best trainers and equipment and promotes them as heroes.

Lets see how they do if the NHL is forced to contract and some of these player lose their jobs. Then some of these self important fringe players would get a reality check pretty quick.
How is that circular?

The players are paid well because they are great at what they do. They aren't great at what they do because they are paid well.
