I 100% believe that Vanek would not have become the player he is right now (and still improving) without Ruff.
Ruff knows he can come down on Vanek hard (and he certainly has) and Vanek more often than not responds. I have not seen a single thing this year that implies to me that Vanek has a bad attitude or has quit on Ruff. If anything, I think Vanek's attitude this year is better than I've ever seen.
I agree if it wasn't for Ruff Vanek would probably be a perennial 40+ goal scorer. Instead of developing his scoring further Vanek has been forced to work on only his defensive game.
