It probably has more to do with Term and Money. Bud can get more on the open market.

The most the Kings could sign him for (if scuds re ups) is 900k.

Bud could get 1.5 to 2m (possible) on the market, I would wait till July 5th as well if I was him.
I agree about the two way contract.
What scares me is that you are probably right about what he might get on the open market. An unproven NHL prospect, which is still what he is. He hasn't played a game and some team might give him that type of money. And then the owner will scream all over about how player salaries are out of control. And they are the ones making them that way. He needs to agree to a one year deal for right at or under 1M. Prove himself and then he will get a raise.
