Getting someone to actually sign the deal seems like a pretty good reason to increase your offer.

Not sure what the rush was, especially because they had to sell Schmidt up the creek at a significant loss as a result.

Yup. I don't see the rush. There was no mention of anyone else.

Because in these situations it's one owner changing his mind and a 15 minute phone call and a deal can be signed elsewhere. If you can get pen to paper on the most sought after defenseman on the market I think most GMs probably wouldn't want to just sit around and hope things slide your way.

What is a "pen" and what is a "paper"?
