Fact is, no one knows what he's looking for. But if it really, truly, is $11m, there's only one other team that can realistically sign him.
I'm not so sure... Kovalchuk's definitely a special player and if he made it to UFA I could see teams like Montreal (Gomez) and the Rangers (Redden) being willing to bury large under-performing salaries in the AHL to make room.
I would have no problem with a 3-5 year deal for $11 million per. 10 years at $11 million, crazy.
The RDS article specifies it only as "long term"... not sure what they consider long term, but I'd consider it five or six years at a minimum.
