NHL lockout Day 7

OF APPLES, ORANGES, DOCTORS, TOM CRUISE AND NHLERS

"People compare their own salaries, their own 9-to-5 jobs... 'Greedy, rich millionaire hockey players. I'd play for one tenth of that, or it'd take me 30 years to make that much.'

"I just tell people you can't compare apples and oranges. I don't compare my salary to Tom Cruise when he makes $20 million per movie. It's just kind of the way it works.

"Is it fair for a doctor or surgeon who saves lives every day to be making less than a hockey player or a basketball player or a movie star? It's not fair. But that's the way it is." -- San Jose defenceman Dan Boyle in an interview with David Pollak of The San Jose Mercury-News.

BUBBLE WRAP NOT INCLUDED

Sidney Crosby's agent Pat Brisson told The Fan 590 in Toronto that it would cost $400,000 a month to insure only part of his client's contract if he was to play overseas. FYI: Crosby, who has played in just 63 regular-season games over the last two years because of concussion-related issues, signed a 12-year, $104.4 million contract extension this summer.
