Philadelphia Flyers forward Travis Konecny is seeking a significant pay increase, reportedly requesting over $10 million for his next contract.

While points aren't the only measure of a player's value, they are often the most important factor. Konecny, drafted 24th overall in 2015, has spent his entire career with the Flyers and has been a crucial team member. With one year left on his current $5.5 million contract, Konecny is coming off a career-best season with 33 goals and 35 assists for 68 points.
This increased production has led to expectations of a raise, but his agent's request has reportedly exceeded the Flyers' expectations. According to insider David Pagnotta, Konecny's agent is seeking a significant increase, which could impact the team's salary cap and future roster decisions.

While Travis Konecny undoubtedly brings valuable assets to the table beyond his contract, it's challenging to envision a scenario where his production warrants a near-doubling of his current salary. Given his physically demanding playing style, it's difficult to picture him aging gracefully, and a contract in this price range would likely become a burdensome cap hit for the Flyers in the long run.
