But don't fret
By the numbers, Gary was making more money per icetime than many star players
His contract: $2 million / year with $10 000 for every game played
This season Gr played 30 games, that's an extra 300 000 bucks in da bank.
He averaged around 12 minutes a game. Doing the math he makes approximately
$6,400 / minute of ice time
Iginla: $7 million; GP 67; 20 minutes a game
Works out to $5223 / minute of ice time
GR is making over $1000 bucks a minute compared to Jarome Iginla!!!
However this is all childs play compared to Marion Gaborik
$7.5 million; GP 6; 20 minutes a game
Gaborik is making an astounishing $62, 500 / minute of ice time
Well PAID Minnesota, well paid.
