I get where you're coming from. I don't know if he's pretending there's nothing wrong... he's looking at the end-of-year run from last year as justification for the coach remaining. And remember, we're all of ten games into the season. The season is short, so we're a higher percentage of the season down...but I don't for a second think that he's sitting there as a giddy fan, thinking Ruff is a legend and that Pegula is privileged to have him working for a team he owns, nor do I think he's fine with the results.

I do hope, though, that he sees what the future has in store - or could have in store - and encourages the GM to make the necessary change in coaching. But for the 239th time in this thread alone, I don't want my owner being the one who has to make hockey decisions.
