That's because he's the only player on the team that can put the puck in the net consistently. So should he be more of a "team player" by sacrificing goals to pass the puck to players who are less likely to score, and thereby decrease his team's chances of winning? Right now it looks like the Thrashers are doing pretty well for themselves with Kovalchuk as their offensive centerpiece.
