The fact that we have not seen that, and his agent has been active in shopping him for the past few months, is evidence to me that no team out there is willing to give up that compensation when his value falls in the lower end of that compensation bracket.

If a team was convinced he was a $3 million per year player, they would have no problem making the $2.6 million offer to him and giving up the proper compensation for it. It would be a no brainer that Carolina wouldn't even match the $1.31 number and would walk away with the 2nd round pick from any team smiling.
Not necessarily. Columbus, for example, can't just add a contract without subtracting one.
