That just means he'll be making NHL money regardless of whether he plays in the NHL or AHL. I assumed he was offered that contract because the Lightning had hopes he would be ready to be at least an NHL backup (based off his performance in Europe).

Right now though, neither AHL goalie looks all that impressive (from what I've seen).
