See this is another thing Jame will refuse to listen to. You hit it dead one In Ruff´s system defenceman like Myers and Ehrhoff take a bigger risk because of their offensive ability thus getting caught out of position more but is acceptable in Lindy Ruffs eyes. There defensive stats may slide a little because Ruff wants them to take chances and join the rush but Jame will tell you otherwise. Stats make a player not his actual play.
