Except they do.
There are plenty of decent goaltenders moving around the league outside of the elite top end. A status which Bernier/Schneider/Harding or any other backup do not qualify for, it's debatable they qualify as "proven".
There is also a ton of risk in picking up sheltered backup goaltenders from elite and/or defensive obsessed teams as well. No team wants to overpay based on unfounded hype and end up with the next Toskala, Cloutier, or Raycroft - a real risk with any tender who hasn't been relied upon as a number 1.
