They have no leverage, it's simple we can just sign him after his FA date passes, instead they can take a middle-round pick or even a second or third rounder if you needed to. But they have no leverage to ask for anything.
Maybe you can figure out someone off the roster to clear some capsapce but them asking for Kadri and a 2nd is just not realistic. You're basically trading for a 1 month window to negotiate earlier.
True, but, If schultz were to hit the open market, almost every team in the league will be on him, bumping up the price. So getting the extra month is huge, and Anaheim will no doubt play that card.
