I'm sure there are some other details in there if someone wants to elaborate, but that's the general idea

Seriously, this stuff makes me want to pull my hair out.

No, no no no no no no no no no no.

By the way, also NO.

Two way deal means they get payed at a different rate in the AHL and NHL. One way means they get the same pay no matter where they play.

A player may for instance make $600k in the NHL, but only $60K in the AHL on a two way deal. On a one way deal they would make $600k in both places.
