Overpaid: Alexei Yashin at $7.6 million
Underpaid: Sidney Crosby at $0.85 million (using an entry level contract is kinda cheating but whatever )

Duvie Westcott only makes 500K. Not bad for a defenseman who logged 22 minutes a game, blocked over 100 shots and had 28 points for the Blue Jackets. Best bargain in the league.

Havlat 6 million dollars for a player who has never hit 70 points. A couple million too much.

Crosby certainly ain't hurting financially. Sure his base contract is miniscule...but he gets about $3 million in bonuses and he collects the most endorsements of any hockey player.

Really? I knew he was doing well for himself on the endorsments but figured a more established star like a Brodeur or Iginla would be raking the most in.

I don't see how Richards is more overpaid than Yashin.

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.

iggy has done some Nike commercials and one for CIBC... but Syd has Reebok and Gatorade... and he is the #1 guy for both companies in regards to hockey... Nike has pread things around much more using more than just Iginla (although he does have his own shoe now )

I forget where I read this, I think a Post-Gazette article but I may be mistaken, but Crosby is definitely #1 and I think it's by a pretty good margin too.

Johnathan Cheechoo is a fantastic bargain at $3 million a year for the next 5 years. Some would probably say that's underpaid for a Rocket Richard winner, especially since Rick Nash turned his trophy into almost double that over the same number of years.

Overpaid: No idea
Underpaid: Not sure but Zetterberg comes to mind (for what he brings, it`s still decent money)..

Exactly. Can't still understand how on earth anyone would like to pay Yashin the amount he is getting. And Canucks are sure happy to have Salo so cheap.

Overpaid - Yashin (If he is paid 7.6 mill, then Richards is worth the extra 200,000)
Underpaid (And locked up for a few years)- Zetterberg.

I am not sure if rookie contracts are fair in this discussion. But yes, Crosby and Ovechkin would be tied in the under, Yashin pretty clearly in the overpaid catagory, mostly because of the length of the trouble his contract is for the Isles even more than the cost.
