I like some of the trends lately in 2-year deals with the first year 2-way, and the second year 1-way, as a means of perhaps scaring off teams from making a waiver claim on a borderline guy. So far White is basically on the team, so it matters little whether his deal is 1-way or 2-way. But if we could sign a couple more experienced forwards, his spot could be jeopardized somewhat... in which case having him either on a 1-way deal or the scare-factor 2-year deal would have been nice. From the fan perspective (no idea how much the real money matters to the organization in relation).

I'll guess 1-year 2-way... it just doesn't seem to me like he has played enough for the Habs to get the 1-way deal yet, and if they were going to give him that the signing would have happened sooner... ?
