Out of the box. Please read. Don't just dismiss the name.

Considering his well publicized off-ice issues, I was wondering if it may be worth the risk to offer him a 1 year, 2 way contract?

I propose a 1 year $1.5 - 2 million/ NHL salary, $50,000/ AHL salary. If he shows he can be professional, he can use this opportunity to earn his way back into the NHL. If he doesn't, send him away, pay him his AHL salary (but don't send him to CHI), let him go to the KHL.

He's a good player on the ice. 2003 10th overall pick. 398 NHL games. 103 goals. 119 assists. The stat I specifically like is his 20 game winning goals.

Obviously a risk. But the 2-way contract will minimize that risk. It's probably his last shot in the NHL.

I don't think you can dictate the AHL rate on a 2-way contract. I believe it's a percentage based on your NHL salary.

Even if that wasn't true, why would he accept such an offer unless it was the only one out there?
