'Defenseman Jay McKee and the Buffalo Sabres agreed Thursday to extend talks for another week to see whether they can negotiate a long-term contract. If a deal isn't reached by then, McKee is prepared to accept a one-year $1.6 million qualifying offer to play with the Sabres. The eight-year NHL veteran would like to play in Buffalo and hopes to secure a longer-term deal before he's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.'
