What's the Avs' motive to bluff? What does the team with the 1st pick stand to gain? The only reason I can think of for this is to start a bidding war between Tampa and Florida for the Jones pick... but that's not really a bluff, it's hype around a deal they are actually willing to make. I agree with you in general, but not regarding the top pick, that team doesn't need to trick anyone.
