[QUOTE=Jester;26631553]That's just it, though. The UFAs can want whatever they want right now, when they get to the open market they're going to find themselves competing for a limited number of jobs. Last guy left standing is going to have to take whatever the team will give him if he wants a starting job.

I don't think they want to go into the season with anyone else but there first choice. Say they like Nabokov and Turco, but they are signed so they are forced to take their third choice in Mason. I just think they would rather control all the options. And its very well possible they don't really like any of the options, and feel they are a minimal upgrade at best. The old fashioned style of Nabokov and Turco may scare them away, specially given their age. Although then you would think they would go after Mason, as the least "old-fashioned" of the three.
