huh.. any bets on whether he got a one-way deal?
At first I wanted to say he got one for sure, but then I wondered why this took so long. Maybe two-way first year, one-way second?
Can you do that though? I'm not sure you can. I think it's all or nothing on the one way vs two way approach.
Maybe it took a while as they worked on getting him a really high AHL salary on a two-way, so if he is demoted, he earns some serious coin. He's clearly proven he can dominate at that level... might as well get paid for it.
