The Buffalo Sabres are working hard to extend star forward Tim Connolly's contract.

Sources tell TSN Sabres general manager Darcy Regier and Connolly's agent JP Barry are making progress in negotiations.

However, the discussions remain at a delicate stage as the two sides are starting to zero in on a term both are comfortable with.

It's still too early to say Connolly's name should be removed from the list of players rumoured to be on the move, but based on negotiations on Tuesday it appears there's a greater chance of Connolly staying in Buffalo than there is of him being moved.

Further details on Wednesday.
