So why giving anything for a UFA while any team will be free to negotiate a contract and sign him without giving anything ?

In fact in the case we dont have a cba until july, Vancouver would not even have any right on him! Dont wont be able to trade him before he became UFA.
Good thing this thread isn't in July, then. Any team in the league would give up a 3rd, even after the season ends, for the right to negotiate with him. If he were traded right now, and the team was able to negotiate an extension, he would go for far more. Any high impact player at the deadline can usually garner quite a bit at the deadline too.
