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.
I'd imagine wingers and replacement centres would be a target for them, which is why I would think Kristo and Desharnais could be of interest.

He has likely "hung around as an RFA with no offers" due more to the GMs looking to curb the big money 2nd contract and try to set the ELC exiting players up to a Bridge deal system than his abilities.
