Richards does get $200,000 more than Yashin. However, he's grown into a strong playoff performer, put up very strong numbers, and is only 26 compared to a 32 year old Yashin, who has considerably dropped in production.
I agree completely. Obviously Richards is not the greatest investment at 7.8 million but he is also an elite player who in my mind, is possibly a top 10 player in the league, which makes it at least reasonable to be paying him such a high number. Yashin on the other hand is nowhere near the player Richards is and his production has been dropping and dropping of recent years. That said, Yashin should be the unanimous choice for overpaid while I'll say Lundqvist is underpaid.

Stillman was worth $1.75 million in his 25 playoff games alone.

Richards is not near the MOST overpaid. He is overpaid a bit but is a very good player.

Yashin is overpaid for sure as well but at least is an NHLer that will get 60-80 pts.

Overpaid: Malakov, Mogilny, Zhamnov and anyone else making $2 milion or more in cap space but that aren't in the NHL.
