Ruff Turned Down Sabres Extension Offer Last Fall

Things just keep getting more interesting in Buffalo in the midst of the pending sale of the team.

From Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News,

In the wake of today’s news that GM Darcy Regier received a two-year contract extension in the fall, it was natural to ask Lindy Ruff if he received the same treatment.

Ruff pulled a shocker after Tuesday’s practice in HSBC Arena when he revealed he also got an extension offer and turned it down. Understandably, Ruff wasn’t all that interested in the line of questioning so his answers were pretty cryptic when pressed by The News on the issue.

Question:  Have you told Terry Pegula you want to stay?

Ruff:  “No. We had a conversation about hockey and that’s as far as I’ll go.”

Well, you don’t get more ambiguous than that.
