He could be making sure the Flyers come with the max offer of $900K because they can offer lower if the want to but I'd wager that wouldn't be the case.

He could want to get some performance bonuses in there.

Lastly he could want a year burnt off his ELC so he only has to wait two years until his second contract as opposed the standard three.

He has some options to potentially get himself more money but my guess is the last option would interest him the most if he indeed was trying to pull a power move here.
