Why? Most of the current players have hardly been exposed to him, particularly with the departures of Connolly, Roy and Hecht in the last two offseasons.

If the team was made up of mostly guys like Vanek, Pommer and Miller, who have all been under Ruff for some time, then your comment would make more sense.

Currently there are only 2 dmen (Myers/Sekera) and 5 forwards (Vanek, Pommer, Stafford, Ellis and Kaleta) and Miller left that were regulars in 09-10. Thats quite a lot of turnover.

I've always been on the side of changing up some of the roster before we throw Ruff over the side. Regier is doing that and now Lindy is starting to get his 5th "team" to work with.

So do I.

I hardly think he is infallable.
