Because first Kessel would actually want to sign that deal, and second Boston matches and you get nothing for your efforts (except to keep your draft picks). Boston then has to clear salary before the start of the season, which is a crappy position to be in, but I think if Boston wanted just those picks for Kessel they would have already offloaded him in a trade for something similar.
