Bidding war? I would imagine it's possible, yes But no team will give away more than a first and a second for him (unless they get into a bidding war over his contract, which is possible but unlikely given the amount of time he has hung around as an RFA with no offers). It's kinda like the "buy it now" option on Ebay. Yes, there can be a bidding war, but if it gets close to the buy it now price someone is going to click that option and end the auction.

The real bidding war is going to be teams determining who on their roster/in the minors/in their prospect pool are the equivalent or less than a first and a second for them, but are much more valuable to the Avalanche.
