He won't give up an asset to just talk to a player.

In the past, he's gotten permission from Pittsburgh and Anaheim to talk to Max Talbot and Justin Schultz. If he had signed either of them, he would have paid for them. But he doesn't give up assets until he signs them. Many GM's work off the same policy.
