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.
Job security.

We do, even if it's a bubble playoff team.

It's REALLY depressing to think that Lindy Ruff's tenure has been twice as long as the Pope's, and if you had asked me last night whose more likely to last longer in their positions, I don't think I would have said Lindy.
