The trade would be for sole rights to negotiate with him. A team could trade the rights to a player who is about to go UFA to a team who wants to be allowed to be the only team allowed to negotiate with that player.
It's what Philly and Nashville did last season with Timonen and Hartnell. In our case it was we were never going to pay for Timonen and Hartnell because of the ownership fiasco so we wanted to get what we could for them. Philly was willing to pay to have the right to negotiate with them before they hit the market.
