I agree that the salary distrubtion trend you mentioned is not yet fully realized, but I still have to say that NHL calibre d-men have more value than 4th line agitators (which not a knock on J. Ruutu, he very good at what he does). I'll be surprised if Jarkko gets even the lower salary on the scale you posted, but then I suppose time will tell.
