Playing right winger and wearing number 11, Danny Cleary played for the Detroit Red Wings during the 2010/2011 NHL season. His salary for the season was reportedly $3,000,000. The total team salary for the Detroit Red Wings was reportedly $64,325,000, so his salary represented 4.7% of that total team payroll. We can compare his salary to the other players on his team. The median salary for a player on the Detroit Red Wings was $1,250,000, while the average salary was $2,474,038. He played a total of 68 games that season, with 26 goals and 20 assists - a total of 46 points. If we divide his reported salary by the number of games played, we find he earned $44,117.65 per game played. Danny Cleary had a plus/minus of -1, 20 PIM (penalties in minutes), 5 PP (power play goals), 0 SH (short-handed goals), 8 GWG (game winning goals), and took 192 shots. He had a shooting percentage in the 2010/2011 season of 13.50%. We can divide his salary by the number of goals scored, as well as by the number of points (goals plus assists), if we want to try to evaluate his performance strictly on offense. His salary per goal scored was $115,385 and his salary per point was $65,217.

But then, there are taxes. Each hockey season is played during two calendar years, however, given an annual salary in the U.S. of $3,000,000 we can estimate that he would have to pay $1,025,284 in federal income taxes. That is about the same amount of tax as the tax paid by 126 median high school teachers, 143 median police officers, or 203 median fire fighters. After paying the IRS, he would have $1,974,716 left over. However, he may still have to use some of that money to pay state or city taxes as well.
