the other teams that are interested who may beat you to the punch or offer more money, term, or some other x-factor. Trading for him now allows a team to bypass all that at least for some time.
I agree but from my standpoint as a flyers fan he would sign with us. He wants to be a starter and he would be on a playoff team that is very young. And he wants money which we would give him.
I think they only thing trading for him gives you over offer sheeting is a million in cap savings max. That's why I'd just offer sheet him
