lidstrom re-signes for two years

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=170096&hubname=nhl

The deal will pay him $7.6 million in each season.

Lidstrom led all defencemen in scoring in 2005-06, with a career-high 80 points, including 16 goals.

Lidstrom also won three consecutive Norris Trophies from 2001 to 2003, becoming the first defenseman since Bobby Orr to win three straight.

In the 2002 Stanley Cup playoffs, Lidstrom was named the winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy as most valuable player in Detroit's Cup run - the first European player to win it.

More to follow.

OT, but just wondering, who is the highest paid player in the league and what is his salary?

That would be Jaromir Jagr, http://nhlpa.com/WebStats/PlayerSearchV2.asp

Go there and sort by compensation.

Prior to the lockout, there was an agreement where the Rangers only paid half his salary, and Washington(?) paid the other half. So it's over the individual max that a single team can pay, but with two teams paying, it's under for each team.

And after the lockout, the new CBA prohibits teams from paying part of a player's salary in a trade, so we won't see that anytime soon.

Not sure on that, but it could be. Part of the agreement in the trade between the Capitals and Rangers was that the Caps would pay half of Jagr's salary. Not a bad move by the Rangers eh? Anson Carter for Jagr with half of his salary paid off. Meanwhile, the Kings would trade Aulin for an injured Anson Carter.

Actually even though that is true.....Jagr's salary last year was suppose to be $8,360,000 last year. But the league said he could not make more than $7,800,000. So it was reduced (with Washington still paying a portion of course). Now that the cap has gone up to $44 million the individual max is $8.8 million. So Jagr's salary was reinstated back to $8.36 million.

It is refered to on this page.
