At what point does Bob resign UFAs and RFAs, optimally, and who stays?

A few games into the season, Tanguay is making a good case for having his contract renewed, especially if he can be had at the current salary.

If you're Bob Gainey, how long do you wait, and whose contract do you renew, assuming they can be had at comparable salaries in the case of the expensive players, and hometown discounts in the case of up-and-coming players whose salary will likely increase? Assuming also that waiting until season's end may entice some of these players to offer their services on the open market...
