Doesn't burn a year of his ELC, but does prevent his ELC from sliding in 2013-2014 since he'll only be eligible to slide once.

All depends on how confident you are he'll be ready for 10+ NHL games in 2013-2014. If he is ready then nothing lost. If he isn't ready then for all practical purposes signing him for this season instead of starting next season burns a year of his ELC.
