We can argue about the bar of success for a team in a transition (playoff berth, winning around, not playing like a gong show...), but the fact that Darcy got another contract without Ruff getting the same gives me some small hope that DR is ready to move on, if appropriate.

The defense is garbage, so they're not buying in. It's almost like Vanek is producing just to spite him. There hardly seems to be any interaction between Ruff and the players during the game. A fresh guy in the room might get the team believing in itself again, and make them at least half-watchable.

Date to circle: Friday. If Boston gets revenge and embarrasses us on home ice Friday, Ruff will be gone by the end of the season.

Why the end of the season? If Friday is such a statement game, then why not by the end of the weekend?
