Is it that hard to understand?
If you use the Gainey method of last minute negotiating then you either pay more or lose more players to UFA then have to go replace them...see Gionta Cammalleri Gomez Spacek Hamrlik etc

Teams that have sucess extend the players they like and want to keep before the cost rises. People complain about the Gorges contract, well it was at the 11th hour(though his injury was a factor) and he ended up about 500k more/year than it would have been 6 months earlier.
