Because they've got a substantial number of tenders. Kiprusoff may still be kicking around, Ramo is his expected successor, Irving is the expected backup (lack of playing time on the Heat notwithstanding), and then there are 2-3 kids between the ages of 18 and 21 in Gillies, Brossoit, and Ortio who have, at times, looked like they might end up as NHLers in the next few years. It's the only position in the franchise where I'd say there is a potential backlog.
