not saying its the right move... but i think it's an option. they've reaped the benefits before.
That's a risky move... Paying for potential in a 6 year contract, this type of deal has worked in the past ( Derek Roy) but it also has blown up in a GMs face also ( Rostislav Olesz)

I'd probably do it just because the cap is higher and 4 million is a lower percentage of cap space now then it was 4-5 years ago but it still is a big risk...

I'd prefer a 2 year deal and then sign Ennis to a long term deal since he will still be a RFA.

Good point.

I think what's important here is Darcy and Lindy establishing Ennis' long-term role on the Sabres. In his final 30 games or so, Ennis didn't just play well - he dominated. Night after night, he was one of the best players on the ice. However, he wasn't facing top checking assignments on a consistent basis during that stretch.

Do they see Ennis as a guy who can go toe-to-toe with some of the better defenders in the league and be the cog of an offense? Or do they view him as a complimentary piece?
