This is very possible. Competition between bidders naturally raises the stock.
However, my statement was in response to someone stating "What if Subban refuses to sign?"
One way or another, if the bidders know that the player refuses to sign with his respective club, that changes the entire landscape of any possible deal.
It certainly puts the dealer between more of a rock and a hard place.
Case in point, Columbus with Rick Nash:
He asked/demanded to be moved. He made it known through the media. Everybody and their mother knew he no longer planned on suiting up for Columbus. The GM was then dealing from a position of weakness. I was actually shocked at how much Columbus got for Nash - while a number of experts felt the Rangers robbed Columbus in that deal.
