I don't think you're overreacting. Such a commitment to making the NHL is big. We've seen other prospects flame out after refusing to make a similar commitment, we've been down that road before. This is a good sign. Even if the guy doesn't ultimately work out, this has to give him the best shot at making it happen.
The way I read it, he'll play in GR if there is a lockout. That's not necessarily the same as going to GR to learn the North American game.
