[QUOTE=LALALALALALAFONTAINE]How much motivation can that be when you see it every night? (Or did.)

If you need motivation to play in the NHL, there is something wrong with you, not your coach.[/QUOTE


Ruff is in a position to definitely influence his team's level of intensity. In a perfect world, every player would earn their paycheck every night. But players, for a million different reasons, go through slumps and hot streaks. Look at Jagr, who is probably doing more harm than good for the Caps. I thought Adam Mair's hit on Palffy the other night was a huge factor in the Sabres not only winning, but dominating the score sheet.
