Well there are a lot of factors here. Lets use basketball as an example. Curry is making north of 40M per year. But basket ball runs a soft cap system with a luxury tax up to a hard cap, 109M and 132M respectively. Both of which are significantly higher than the NHL's current cap so there is a lot more money to hand out.
Sport popularity factors into this too, the higher income the sport makes the more it can afford to pay out its players.
Team roster sizes also factor in, basketball has a roster size of 15, bs 20-23 for NHL
And lastly the significance of superstars vs other players roles. In a game like basketball superstars are much more relevant then in hockey. In hockey positions like Goalie and defense are important enough that their pays add up and reduce the amount of cap space you can spend on a superstar.

Plus we all agree that 3really good players in basketball can win you close to everything but in hockey you really need a full roster we saw this with St. Louis, and it’s even more important with all the injuries in the hockey

I totally agree hockey is the best sport. It's also the most expensive. Soccer, basketball, baseball and football cheap in comparison. So you have a lot more kids playing it.

Soccer is the most popular sport because all you need is a ball, and two markers for goal posts. to practice it.

You can practice basketball with a ball and a flat surface.

Stickball is baseball without a bat and most of the time no gloves.

Football a ball and a friend is all you need to play catch.

You need skates or rollerblades and a stick to simulate hockey.

Soccer is also easier to learn, and you can learn a lot more by yourself than hockey. In hockey you need to learn how to walk again basically.
