One of these guys gets paid well, the other puts up numbers. They are not the same guy

On March 6th, Backhand Shelf took a look at Bang4YourPuck.com, and noted the NHL’s best cost-per-point players – it’s always fun to do towards the end of the season. Today however, we’re going to be Negative Nancy’s, and look at the worst.

Here’s a list of those who are dead-last, with some caveats first:

Injuries play a role in this list, as some guys haven’t had the opportunity to play enough games to actually score points. There is a 10-game minimum (to eliminate all the 9-game tryout youngsters that would populate the list), but some of these names didn’t get in many games this year.

There’s also the caveat that some guys are defensive defensemen, and their job isn’t to score goals.

Still, it’s always fun to take a peak – check out Bang4YourPuck here for more (and follow them on Twitter – @Bang4YourPuck), but only after you look at the worst cost-per-point players in the NHL.

Oh my goodness, is that Scott Gomez’s music?!
