Rights to a FA????

I has seen some offers on here where people are asking for a 2nd round pick for the rights to JayBo...

Why would a team trade anything for the rights to a FA? I know they can negotiate with him till FA starts but why not just wait till he becomes a FA 2 weeks later and sign him?

Am I missing something or is trading for the rights to a FA a waste of assets?

Do you see any Free Agents rights being traded this summer?

I doubt any team will give up their 2nd rounder in this very deep draft for negotiating rights.

Historically teams that trade for negotiating rights have an over 50% success rate at signing the player they traded for. Compare 1:2 to 1:30 and it makes sense why someone might risk it.

Buffalo gave up their 2nd round draft pick for Dominic Moore.

Anything can happen when you consider how many dumb GM's there are today.

From the Canucks standpoint - Ohlund's rights will easily be moved if the demand is there. Ohlunds time with this team is done and he's 100% ready to find a new home.

No, because you can negotiate with that UFA well in advance. Look at Malone and Roberts last year for Tampa.

They also trade for Rolston, which didn't work out well, but my point remains.

Flyers gave a 1st for Hartnell and Timmonen. Some say it was pre-arranged when teh Flyers got the 1st from Nashville for Forseberg

Trades for rights are few and far between, and they only occur when teams are very convinced that they are going to be able to make the signing.

I doubt we'll see any deals like that this summer.

The way it usually (supposed to) works is that the team who owns the rights allow the player to talk to another team, and if they work out a contract, then they make the trade.

I think we see a few trades for rights, for a good team looking for a signing to get them over the hump trading a 2nd for that player is great deal instead of trading a first rounder + at the deadline. Also if the contract doesnt work out they team gets something like a 2nd rounder next year.
