Actually, it makes a tiny amount of sense. Schultz seems to be a 12PM July 1 signing (legally for once since teams are free to speak with him), while Suter and Parise are expected to take a few days. The guys who strike out on Suter aren't going to have much left over for options by the time he makes a decision. I haven't run the numbers, but maybe Lats would have made signing Schultz (or any other UFA d-man) put us out of cap room for both Parise and Suter.
You don't have to think you would be successful in signing both in order for it to be wise to have the option.
