BTW, what do you think the Panthers are actually prepared to offer? At the end of the day, that's what determines a player's market value, and so far (at least in this thread), there only seems to be 1 team interested.

You mean what do FLA _fans_ offer? Or what are TO _fans_ willing to offer? The fact is that Burke doesn't know what Tallon's offer is, or will be. In the real world. So how does he adjust to the market? What is the market? Does every GM know what the other is offering?

To date, here is an amalgam of what is known via rumours from reporters:

TO: Burke rumoured to offer Komisarek, Kulemin and a 1st in one deal (rejected) and Schenn in another before he was dealt. Gillis countered with Gardiner + 1st + Frattin + Bozak.

FLA: Gillis wanted Bjugstad, Tallon rejected the deal.

CHI: Bowman offered Bolland, Gillis rejected.

CLB: Talked to Gillis at the draft, but offer unknown.

EDM: Their last offer _bettered_ TO's best offer, from reports, but the details are unknown.

SJS: Was rumoured to be kicking the tires, but remain a peripheral team.

So does this define the "market" for you? Or do the fans?

Lol, too true. The two extremes eh?
