And if Goat is some sort of skilled GM like the apologists like to pretend, he will jump on this opportunity to extend him.

edit: I forgot to mention he is also relatively young... if there will be a cup run before he retires, Kost will play a major part in it as a veteran
Its not like he's a 65-70 point winger. He's a run of the will 2nd line guy who puts about about 40 points. Players of his ilk are literally a dime a dozen. He may think he would taking less by signing for what he currently gets, but in reality he is already overpaid for what he produces. He's been living off of the one half season of riding Kovalev's coattails and the RFA mandatory raises ever since.
