You are arguing for an incredibly conservative approach to trades that contradicts what often happens in the real world. I get that you guys think it's risky - but impending UFA's are traded all the time. For decent returns.

If Edler were to sign in Philly, it would be because he played the year there - got to know the personnel and players and came to a mutually agreed upon salary amount. Doubt he signs there without playing a single game as a Flyer.
Because no player has ever signed anywhere he hasn't played
