Once it was known what the Devils were going to offer at least, that's when the other dominoes could start to fall in place. That's exactly how it played out with all of the guys that stayed. And lets not forget the small possibility Brodeur was intrigued to experience free agency, even if he had no intention of leaving. This was his first time hitting unrestricted free agency after all.
And the fact Marty wanted two years - with good reason as it turned out, since this year nearly blew up - and Lou wasn't willing to do that until he 'had' to.
