Top 10 Most Overpaid NHL Players

7 of 11

5. Eric Staal, Carolina Hurricanes ($8.25 million per season)

Staal's status as the Hurricanes' franchise player and his strong postseason performances netted him a seven-year, $57.75 million contract, ranking him with Alexander Ovechkin, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin as the only players currently earning more than $8 million per season. Since 2006-07 however he hasn't posted the kind of offensive numbers those players have, and 13 games into this season had only five points. Staal's a terrific player but apart from his 100-point performance in 2005-06 he hasn't posted the stats worthy of such a huge contract. -- Spector (AP Photo/Karl B. DeBlaker)
