NOTE: It must be a one-way qualifying offer if a) the player appeared in 180 or more NHL games in three previous seasons; b) the player appeared in 60 or more NHL games the previous season; and c) the player did not clear waivers during the previous season. Backup goaltender appearances count as games.

CBA REFERENCE: Section 10.2 a (P. 30-31)

Don't think it's accurate.
It's explained in the bolded part above.

Regardless, the tweet is still incorrect. They can't offer lower than his QO (which is a 1 way deal per the CBA). Moreover, why would a team without a backup goalie (with no apparent intention to sign a different back up goalie) offer the kid a 2-way deal?
His QO is a $660k two-way contract, not a one-way.
