The only 2 guys off the top of my head that Regier did not give a good bridge contract to was Vanek and Myers. We know the deal with Vanek, and Myers is likely worth the long term deal himself. But basically Regier sets a high standard...you gotta prove yourself to be really damn important to get that rich 2nd contract from us.

Plus, if he turns around and gets a 6 year deal done next time, that's 2 more years of Ennis than if he gives the 6 year deal now like other GMs would do. Now, while the Sabres were a budget team, that was huge. But even now it has it's advantages.
