If anything, more often than not, you have to overpay to land a player imo.
Well then theres no point in moving players and taking on salary for a playoff run, isn't there?

Deadline deals are costly, disruptive to team chemistry (unless you need a shakeup), and can lose you some of your future to hedge on the present.

That's why the only 2 deals a smart GM should table or accept are a) lateral moves (D to D-starved team, C to C-starved team), or b) steals, which aren't exactly dime-a-dozen
