Ruff's comments in the OP are very similar to sentiments held by many posters. As in its a bit scary to have two unproven kids as your top two centers, regardless of how talented they are. Ruff also said he was ok with giving up Roy's skill for Ott's grit. Thats because of his high opinion of Ennis and his potential at center. CoHo factors into that as well.
Seems reasonable to me. Yet I'm reading some posters twisting this into Ruff wasn't happy about the Roy trade.
If Ruff has a big say on personel and works in concert with Regier, then he was obviously on board with the trade for Ott.
That Ruff has made comments about missing a player he obviously liked and coached for several years doesn't change that. I would call that a normal sentiment to have and not conspiracy theory fodder that he wasn't happy with the trade.
