Jeez, the double standard around here.
No, it's called he's a 31 year old Veteran UFA, trying to get the best contract. You do realize that by having other teams come in and pitch offers, it drives up the price.

Schultz is an unproven 2nd round pick who thinks he is the ****ing man. There is no bargaining chip by having all the teams pitch you offers. The ELC max is the ELC max. Just sign where you want, the money is gonna be the same.

You're comparing apples and oranges.

Richards wanted NYR all along, but he used other teams to get the best possible contract from us.

Schultz had no reason to use other teams, the ELC max is set in stone.
