The "Salary Cruncher" on

This gimmick allows you to compare your salary—in myriad ways—with the pay of selected high, low and average earners in each of the four major sports. Example: If you make $50,000 per year, it would take you 4.709 years to earn what the Penguins' Jaromir Jagr (whose salary is $10,359,852) earned for each of

his 44 goals last season ($235,451). It's fast, fun—and demoralizing!
