Why would they negotiate before the trade?

Mid-season, Canucks tell Edler they don't want him and will trade him. Then they ask him to do them a favor and sign with the other team so they can get extra value. This helps the Nucks get more value, hurts the Isles by giving up more, and hurts Edler because he is betrayed by his team and doesn't the chance to explore UFA.

And if Edler refuses to sign with NYI, Nucks are stuck with a disgruntled player that knows they wanted him gone.

Really you think that is plausible. It's NEVER happened.
