<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>JTBF81</b></div><div>It's a very easy decline from Tampa. A 2nd round pick both does nothing for Tampa now, and it isn't enough anyway. It's great that a writer for the Athletic believes he may be worth something, and when they are an actual GM dealing with Tampa, Tampa fans might care. Tampa is very likely not trading Colton anyway, but if they were to, it would be for the deal they want, not accepting a mediocre return. If N.J. wants him, Tampa would consider it for Bahl+either Boqvist or McLeod, in exchange for Colton+Fleury+mid round pick/B prospect. If Bahl isn't available, Tampa moves on to.another team.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Boltsbeathabs</b></div><div>What does Julien Brisebois have to do to prove to people he doesn't value picks? This is an utterly useless return for TB. What rational person believes this would be accepted by TB?</div></div>
Strange day today, huh?
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>JTBF81</b></div><div>And again, I don't care about what one specific site may say, as what I have used pretty much lines up with the rosters i create. Again with reporters(or in this case, one reporters opinion), and others that had nothing credible from inside Tampa, but fueled rumors and speculation by saying, "they think Tampa may have offered Killorn a long-term, low aav contract", and Colton is looking for a considerable or significant raise, which then immediately got plastered everywhere as, omg, Colton is pricing himself out of Tampa...There is nothing substantiated.</div></div>
Here is how one specific site’s projections performed. Idr last time they did this chart, but I’m going to asssume it’s better than your own value assessments that you refuse to disclose
<div class="tweet"><blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Nov 11th NHL contract projections update! The model continues to perform well, however, there are still quite a few free agents who have not signed. We projected contracts for a total of 358 free agent skaters, and of those 125 are still unsigned (70 UFA / 55 RFA). <a href="https://t.co/9E7Q0XRoLU" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">pic.twitter.com/9E7Q0XRoLU</a></p>— EvolvingWild (@EvolvingWild) <a href="https://twitter.com/EvolvingWild/status/1326624359637725191?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">November 11, 2020</a></blockquote>
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>JTBF81</b></div><div>Or you know, justifying it based on Tampa's actual needs and not what some Devils fans thought based on one random report. If said reporter is so analytically inclined, there's more than a decent chance they are using some kind of algorithm or comparable tools, to aid in the formulation of their theoretical player values. Keep throwing pitiful shade attempts though, it's always at that point in any kind of discussion where I know that person has nothing of relevance left to contribute, if they ever did.</div></div>
There is literally no algorithm, and it’s based on reporters and insiders doing actual reporting.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>JTBF81</b></div><div>Nah, every roster that I create anyway uses fair market value within a few hundred k, at most. Perhaps I don't use whatever model or chart you consider, but I don't really care tbh. Tampa will run 21 if they have to, yes, especially if that's the difference between Colton or not. More than likely, Tampa will just go a bit cheaper with the extra F or 3LD, and they'll run 22.</div></div>
Literally the first roster on your profile doesnt line up with with contract projections per Evolving Hockey.
