How do you know which agents Homer spoke with leading up to the opening of free agency? Which goalies wanted to come here, and Homer declined to offer them a contract?

Is it possible he had several targets ahead of Leighton, and after speaking with their representatives and realizing he couldn't sign any of them, ML became the next option?
didnt want to. Holmgren has a history of not playing the market. You really think that every UFA backup goalie didnt want to come here? and Holmgren took the time to do that kind of research?
He did the same thing in 2010 with Leighton. Holmgren has never been patient this time of year.
its ok tho, when Leighton gives up a bad goal you can do what you always do. blame the system. Hey it worked for Bryzgalov.
