He's a playmaking winger now, who can set them up as easily as he has scored them nowadays...and he's obviously a finisher. He knows where to be for the most part in the D-zone, occasionally he'll be late getting there. But he works hard on the backcheck and has matured a ton.

But there's definitely something there in terms of Ruff and staff advising Myers to play outside of his bailiwick. It has hurt him. But there are problems and issues that are deeper and more intrinsic than Ruff.
I just posted a thread that might hit on this a bit more...
