I think he's asking 10 million of a franchise he knows he has by the nuts and that will likely never win anything. I doubt he starts asking for 10 million if traded or if he hits UFA. I think someone gives him 9, but not 10. And really, he is one of the few players that deserves such a high pay grade because he is one of very few players in the league that can dominate offensively, completely on their own and without support, night in and night out. He's also got marketability on his side since he is such an electrifying player to watch. Joe Thornton may rack up the assists, but you can't draw casuals with some fancy passes. Kovy on the other hand adds a big boost to any market that knows anything about hockey since he is easy to pick out and always making highlight reel plays.
