I am about 99.9% sure it is a 2 way contract, I think all rookie contracts are structured so that there is some encentive to make the big club for those soley motivated by money.

You don't want to guarantee a kid a million bucks a year, he has to earn it.

I would say it's a 2 way contract since Gainey said he will play in the minor league but he will be at training camp.

He goes to the net, he's always shooting the puck, he takes the body without taking penalties, and he backchecks.

He was a huge player for us last year and I'd offer him a two year deal at 1.5 and 1.7 without much hesitation.
Im not questionning Ryder's efficiency, just saying we have great depth in our depth chart especially on the right wing with Perezhogin, Kostitsyn and Zednik, what could play against Ryder... You have to notice that Ryder only had 1 good season in the NHL and has been so so in the playoffs...

Edit: 1 million for the next season to prove himself would be fair to me.

$1.5 mil sounds about right to me. If he thinks he's worth more, let him base his contract on incentives. He's basically getting paid to score goals, so if he scores 30, let him make $2 mil, or whatever he thinks he's worth if he does.
I dislike performance bonus... Just look at how Zednik's play looked like after Savard signed him with incentives.. He was playing to score goals, winning came second!

I'd like to see Ryder signed for 2 years, at around 2.5 mil (1.25 X 2)

He does need to prove that he is the player from last year, and also it gives him a big boost in salary that he deserves from his great play from last year. But I'd also like to see 2 years for the commitment the team gave him in his development... He did take 5 Full seasons to develop...

I think he's gonna get signed to a 2 yr / 2 M $ MAX...I wouldn't be surprised if he signed 1 yr at 800k or 850k
