That way you can get that second in a addition to getting him, and you dont run the risk of him walking away to a team like Wash or just trying to bump up the contract again.
I'd rather get an extra 2nd rounder over just getting him into 10 Hartford games.
Probably dumb to mention, but it sounds like a wise move from the hockey perspective.
Except for the massive fine and possible loss of pick/voided contract compensation that the NHL legal office would levy against the franchise.
