Uwe Krupp

Detroit Red Wings, 1998

The defenseman got a four-year deal worth $16.4 million, only to have a back injury cut short his first season in Detroit. He was later suspended by the team without pay for refusing to release his medical records, and the two parties ended up in court. Krupp ended up playing only 30 games for the Wings during the course of his contract.
