NHL Salaries

Chris Botta has a piece for SBD here: http://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/Journal/Issues/2012/08/13/Leagues-and-Governing-Bodies/NHL-pay.aspx on salaries for the leading NHL executives.

Commissioner Gary Bettman's compensation is listed as $7,983,753 for the year ending 6/30/11.

Assuming he has received no raise since then, his compensation would be higher than all but 15 NHLers NEXT season.

Thanks, cap geek.
