whether a contract is one-way or two-way, the player would still have to clear waivers if sent down. It just means that if they do clear, they'd be paid the same amount in Winnipeg as Vancouver. Ownership did give MG permission to spend whatever he needed to build a winning franchise, so that means he has a bit of leeway to overspend on prospects earmarked for the AHL. That must be attractive to college players that MG has signed/attempted to sign.
More importantly, it's not like he's a total plug that couldn't get a 4th line/13th forward spot somewhere else, a 1-way contract was likely necessary.
