Assuming it is true, I cannot imagine this being anything other than a signing to bolster Rochester.

Added incentive to Olofsson’s contract. 

What incentive? His brother will be playing an hour away on an AHL deal.

Agents aren't that stupid...(Victor) Olofsson will get his money and they know that Botterill will be desperate to keep him, just like Skinner.

As for this signing, meh...I'll be surprised if he scores 15 goals for the Amerks.

I think you are being naive if you don't think Victor being on the Sabres didn't have something to do with this signing. 

As for Victor's contract, he doesn't have the track record Skinner did, so he has much less leverage.

And he’s also an RFA. His only real leverage is arbitration.

A very valuable tool depending on the skill of the other negotiating party.
