Or some hookers and blow. It's a good bargaining chip, but it doesn't seem to be an issue for owners with deep pockets. They flew Kovalchuk out on what I'm sure was a private charter with an all expenses paid trip and stay at a five-star hotel. And I bet Kovalchuk milked as many perks as possible before getting every penny out of New Jersey. Hell, Terry Murray even paid for his coffee!
