There is something about waiting until the bitter end to make a deal that makes the GM's feel so smart.
i think it also has to do with the top guys available.

ex. Ryan Miller - buffalo holds out as long as possible to get the best possible offer for miller. in the meantime teams that want miller say ANA or NYI are sitting on that deal. Maybe Ana has a deal for hiller but they wont make it until a miller trade happens ex ex like a domino effect. my guess is teams are waiting to see the price on Miller, Callahan, Vanek, Girardi and then when those pieces fall the dominoes all fall quick.
