Rangers left wing Ryan Hollweg had an assist yesterday. That puts him in the upper echelon of NHL players. As evidence, here is a comparison of his numbers (0 G, 1 A) and salary ($500,000) with some other well-known NHLers.

  • Luongo, VAN: 0 G, 2 A, $6.5 million
  • Turco, DAL: 0 G, 2 A, $5.7 million
  • Osgood, DET: 0 G, 2 A, $800,000
  • Vokoun, FLA: 0 G, 1 A, $5.3 million
  • Brodeur, NJ: 0 G, 1 A, $5.2 million
  • Nabokov, SJ: 0 G, 1 A, $5 million
  • DiPietro, NY: 0 G, 1 A, $4.5 million
  • Kiprusoff, CGY: 0 G, 1 A, $3.6 million
  • Hasek, DET, 0 G, 1 A, $2.05 million
  • Fleury, PIT: 0 G, 1 A, $1.6 million
  • Toskala, TOR: 0 G, 1 A, $1.375 million

You see clearly that Hollweg is providing equal, or almost equal, production to all these well-known players for only a fraction of the price.
