Myers is the only guy I can think of that Regier locked up long term coming off an ECL.
Yep. Myers proved himself to be key contributor and a potential franchise defenseman very early, so locking him up for that kind of term and money made sense. Ennis has high upside but he hasn't shown enough yet to warrant a long extension like that. He'll have an opportunity to over the next 2 years, and if he does, then he cashes in and we lock up a dynamic young scorer. If he doesn't, it's no biggie since we're not committed to him for forever.
