Contract talks continue for Ennis

The Buffalo News has reported, via a source, that contract talks between the Sabres and restricted free agent forward Tyler Ennis remain ongoing.

Ennis, 22, is one of many high-profile restricted free agents awaiting a new deal after completing his three-year entry-level contract last season.

After compiling 15 goals and 19 assists for 34 points in just 48 games due to an ankle injury last season, Ennis could look to cash in on a significant deal.

However, the breach in the Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations does not have the Sabres rushing to re-sign the winger.

While Ennis would most likely love to sign a lucrative multi-year contract with similar numbers to Carolina Hurricanes forward Jeff Skinner's six-year, $34.35 million, Edmonton Oilers stars Jordan Eberle's six-year, $36 million and Taylor Hall's seven-year, $43 million, a short-term contract is likelier.

It remains to be seen if the remaining restricted free agents still without contracts will opt for a shorter deal with less money or gamble on a new CBA with indefinite terms on entry-level contracts and the unrestricted free agent market.
