another team offered any of the players they were over-valued at that time (i.e., Ryan Kesler getting $2.5M from Flyers was perceived to be a gross over payment and Nonis got berated for matching it) And it is not about whether the player switches teams or not, it's the perceived inflated value of an RFA.
Sorry Cap, but i don't see how it's inflated value.
Ones value is what even just 1 GM is willing to pay.
It's not all about comparables to what others are making.
