BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said on Tuesday that he was offered a contract extension earlier in the season, but didn't sign it.
The news comes following a report in The Buffalo News that said general manager Darcy Regier was given a two-year extension some time in the fall.
"It's a situation I'd rather not talk about," said Ruff, whose contract expires following this season. "They were gracious in what they offered me."
Ruff, Buffalo's coach since 1997, added that he wants to stay with the team, but his and Regier's status will be in question after Pennsylvania billionaire Terry Pegula becomes the new owner. Current owner Tom Golisano is expected to officially announce the sale of the team to Pegula on Thursday.
