IMO, this is a huge wait-and-see contract. I think someone speculated earlier that he'll be in the A this year, and he might have been promised(ish) a backup spot next year with Garon expiring. The unique nature of the contract seems to support that hypothesis. 550k on a two-way deal doesn't sound like an NHL starter to me.

I highly doubt we're already done tinkering with the goalie position this summer. However, it makes me wonder if Tik will be a part of a trade package, because right now we've got quite a cluster of 1b's/AHL goalies.
