07:17 AM ET 10.05 | It might come as a surprise to hockey fans to know that seven goaltenders, including Colorado's backup, will bank more than Martin Brodeur this season. Kimmo Timonen, not Nicklas Lidstrom, will be the highest-paid defenseman. Bryan McCabe will get more than Jarome Iginla, Joe Sakic or Joe Thornton. And get this: Thomas Vanek's pay will be more than 10 times Sidney Crosby's base salary. There is no simple explanation for all the disparities because there are more than 700 NHL players and the compensation they'll receive from their teams in 2007-2008, all in U.S. dollars, has in many cases been arrived at differently.
