Pominville added: “We want something that’s fair for us. It’s not only for us. It’s for the younger guys coming in eventually that will be part of the CBA. It has a big effect on a lot of people.”
Of course, a lockout would hurt more than the players, something Pominville understands.
“It’s frustrating for them, frustrating for us,” Pominville said. “It affects a lot of people; the people working in the building, the concessions, the restaurants around the arena won’t generate as much revenue.”
Ennis isn’t fretting because he’s unsigned.
“A lot of RFAs are in the same boat,” he said. “I’m not frustrated.”
The 22-year-old said he believes the CBA could be playing a factor.
“Maybe people are waiting to see what happens,” he said.
Could something get done before Saturday?
“We’ll see,” Ennis said. “Maybe.”
