Interesting list... I'm not very knowledgable about salaries. But, one that I do know should be on the list is Phil Nevin at $9.5 million.
He is the highest paid player on the Rangers, but certainly not even close to the most skilled.
He has looked pretty good this first week, but I wouldn't hold my breath he'll continue.
As for Kris Benson, being able to have his wife around the clubhouse is worth at least $4.3 million to club morale. So, in reality, his salary is $4.0 million, and that is more reasonable.
