At first I was surprised by the high salary amount. But thinking about it, it is right about where it was projected he would be paid, just a bit higher.
People are forgetting to factor in the fact that the Canadian dollar has plummeted over the last couple years and is only worth about 80% of the US dollar.
And as already been pointed out, Ontario is taxed up the ass, so factoring in those two thing, he is making just north of 4 mil per season average. It was predicted he would set coaching salary records, by getting about 4 mil.
