I tweeted this after the game, but I'd say (if we aren't there already) we're one more bad showing, win or lose, from Ruff entering the Dick Jauron Zone. The parallels, other than the longevity, are obvious: boring, uninspired play and a coach that's appeared the have checked out.
What happened to the old, climbing-on-the-bench-to-attempt-to-kill-the-Ottawa-coach Lindy Ruff? There's no fire there, and it's evident in the team's play. Pominville is a great captain, but he's not a fiery leader by any means. There's too much nonchalance in this team, and one of the leaders needs to have the cajones to fire the boys up.
That falls on Lindy, and it's plenty obvious that he's not doing his job. How he remains in it, to the degree that he has, is beyond me.
