That wont stop half this board from accusing him of it if the Leafs sign Schultz. For years after people will complain about him being caught tampering.

Do you have any link to back this up? As far as I know there are no rules against 2 players talking about playing together or having 1 of them sign with the other when he becomes a UFA.
Now if Gards was doing it on behalf of management with assurances that the Leafs would offer him a contract that would be different but that is unlikely. It is well publicized that the leafs tried to trade for Schultz, he should know we are interested in acquiring him leaving no reason to go the back channel route to tell him that.
