It was absolute lunacy IMO that Ruff didn't at least use Ehrhoff on the 4-on-3 PP the other night (instead of Gragnani) or more often on 5-on-3's - granted, his big shot has been defended against on most 5-on-4 power plays but with the added open ice and fewer defenders in those other PP situations, I would think Ehrhoff would be a no-brainer to use as the one guy at the point. How often did we see Ruff use Kotalik on 5-on-3's and 4-on-3's for just that reason, knowing the big bomb from the point was harder to cover?
Ehrhoff's overall play hasn't earned him any favors but it's time the Sabres focus on making it work - if they don't, it's going to be a long 10 years....
