You guys should listen to Pegula's interview on the audio vault if you haven't yet. It was pretty eye opening to me.

My read was that he is involved quite a bit in player moves and a lot of the decision to spend on Leino and Ehrhoff last year was his idea. In his words "we needed to get some things done last year." He said they are not taking that approach this year- which I took to mean they will not be spending big money in the free agent market.

Also the comparison of Ruff to Joe Paterno was extremely worrying to me. I'm wondering if we might be talking about a lifetime coach here. In Pegula's words, "Ruff was a few bad breaks away from 2 stanley cups."
