Couldnt agree more.
I'd love for us to sign Kovy for $6m - $7m. But at $8+? No, sorry. He's not a top 5 player in this league to demand top 5 player money. It would handicap us way too much when we need to start resigning some of our other guys if we tied up $8.5M/year in cap space on Kovy.
If his primary motivation is money, I can see him going to the KHL.
