Maurice Richard and Frank Mahovlich were paid $25,000 per year in the early 60s.
Shea Webber gets $14,000,000 as of today.
That is 560 times as much as Richard and Mahovlich were paid in the early 60s.
So if the stats remain true that is $7,840,000,000 which is impossible.
I would say around $75,000,000 per year for the most elite player.
$25k in 1960 is the equivalent to about $195k today. Players then were paid as upper-middle class folks, not as the ultra rich that they are now.
Hockey, like every other major sport, experienced astronomical salary growth between roughly 1990 and 2000. In 1990 only two players (you can guess who) made over a million per year. By 2000, two players were getting in excess of $10m (Jagr and Kariya), and average salaries more than tripled during this time frame.
My point is, you can't make a linear project from 1960 to 2060. Salaries for athletes will likely never grow as quickly as they did during the end of the 20th century, and you have to account for that anomaly.
