Best Answer

It matters how good you are and how much money your franchise has. A player like Ovie gets payed 9-12 million dollars every year. He has great skills and he plays for the Caps which is a franchise with LOTS of money. A player like Rick Nash gets payed about 5 million dollars every year. Again he is a great player but his franchise (The Columbus Blue Jackets) are in major trouble right now. They have barley any money. A player maybe a new rookie on a franchise with lots of money may not get payed a lot because they don't do much for the team until they become big stars. Many different wages.
