You've seen people say they want Wallace gone? I haven't read a lot on the board lately, but it seems like some are saying we have to keep him at all costs, while others say 1st round tender should be enough.
I'd say all (or at least the VAST majority) want to keep Wallace. Some just don't want to overpay when we think we could get him for cheaper. They see a 1st round pick as compensation a better worst case scenario than paying him $9.5M this year so he walks next year (and we get a 3rd or 4th comp the year after that provided we don't bring in a UFA).
