You are comparing apples to oranges.
Yes

Especially considering the roles of those players

11 starting offense players
11 starting d players
These are the guys who make all the money

The offense then has about 14 more players who are second and third string and special teams players. Same with the D

Then there is a punter and kicker and a backup kicker/punter.

Apples and oranges from the NHL
