What would be the benefit of that for him? if he has a release clause (assuming it's honoured) then it doesn't matter whether the contract is one or two years, it doesn't hamper him playing in the NHL either way. But with a two year contract the advantage for him I guess is that he has somewhere to play if the lockout were to stretch into next season (and if that happened presumably there would be more NHL'ers looking for work overseas than there are now and hence more competition for contracts).
