Can you imagine calling up Edler and saying ''Yo dude, we want to trade you to NYI, but they'll only accept if you extend with them so... can you do that for us?''

Edler would cut all contact with Nucks management and and just wait it out til UFA
Look, I don't see what's so hard to understand. Teams in the past have payed a lot for pending UFAs, as they believe they can re-sign them. Correct?

If the NYI feel they can re-sign him, they will value him similarly. And it's about as likely that the NYI can re-sign him as it is that players will waive their NTC. As in both cases it simply means the player is willing to be with the team.

According to your logic, no team would ever give up top prospects/1sts/whatevers at the deadline, when obviously it does happen.
