If they win two and make the others somewhat competitive it's even money. If they win three, and it's not an epic up three games and lost situation, I think the chances are a little better they keep him.
Even if Ruff were suddenly available at the end of this season, I highly doubt the Avs would hire him. It's just not the way they do it, for better or worse.

Unless Quinn proves to be an absolute disaster as an assistant, the job will be his to lose...if Sacco loses it first, of course.

But I agree...making it to the playoffs should not be the end goal.
