2. Nicklas Lidstrom
A finalist for the Hall of Fame class, Nicklas Lidstrom has found himself amongst those who are considered to be the best hockey players to ever grace the earth, and this for a good reason.
He has been the captain of the Detroit Red Wings for six seasons and his leadership abilities have earned him the nickname Mr. Perfect. He has managed to win four Stanley Cups, a Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP and seven top defensemen awards in 20 seasons.
With all these awards, it is no surprise that he has made $100.64 million during his career.
