Thoresen earn about 12 mill nor kroner a year
in SKA and he is the alternate captain. So I doubt that any NHL will give him that much
Zuccarello earns between 12-14 mill norske kroner
after tax is payed.
Quite amazing that Zuccarello earns the same or a bit more than Thoresen! Zuccarello is an amazing wing on big ice very suited to russian style of hockey; BUT
Thoresen is in my opinion a fantastic versatile player. His can play both center and wing, scores goals and bring on the assists and lead his team, while also being good defensively.
In KHL: Thoresen 14G 21A (0,85 point average) while Zuccarello 8G 13A (0,66 point average).
Tollefsen and HolÝs are clearly good enough for NHL, but I totally understand they want to play important parts on their teams instead of playing as low pairing d-men.
