I think that at the time of the trade with TO, he probably sat down and evaluated his defense prospects and decided that he would have the brighter future with Schultz and then he sent Gardiner away. I don't think he would have put his faith in Schultz like that if he didn't think that he could sign him.
Or Murray could have just made an assumption without knowing if Schultz was going to sign or not.

The time they did talk, and when Schultz made his "promise," was the offseason after the Beauchemin trade.
