I had a hard time placing this thread but decided to put it here.
In the new edition of The Hockey News there is much focus on Europe. Among other things, THN estimate the average salaries in the European top leagues.
Although it is a very difficult topic, I thought we could have a discussion on this.
For openers, the first thing I don't get is the estimated figures in THN.
Here they are: measured in US$
1. Russia: $400,000
2. Sweden: $200,000
3. Switzerland: $170,000
4. Germany (DEL): $150,000
5. Czech Republic: $100,000
6. Slovakia: $75,000
7. Finland: $67,000
The figure for Finland is surely to low. Did they miss a 1-digit before the 67? I also think the Czech number is too high? What do you think?
