You just want to slam DL for this. It's a mutual decision essentially and I'd like to see an example of a guy getting a one-way deal without playing one NHL game (with the possible exception of a college UFA signing, but even in those cases I don't recall any off the top of my head). Can't slam DL for doing what any other GM would have done.
College UFA's are required to sign ELC's, so those would automatically be two-way.

It's not common at all, Jets did this past off-season with D Paul Postma (well 4 career games before hand), but your right it's not that common.

I think mistakes were made on both sides, but it's hard to know exactly without knowing exactly what happened between the two (and we don't and likely will never know exactly how this went down). Both sides have their argument.
