We've all read about the Vanek-Ruff relationship soap opera - I'll be curious on how Ruff's dismissal influences Vanek's play moving forward. Will he feel more free to create offense and less accountable to defensive duties? Will the others?
Veteran player, with other team experience:
Regehr, Erhoff, Ott, Leopold, Sulzer, McCormick, Scott.
I discount Hecht as a disgruntled source.

Tip, I always appreciate your insights and style (multiple posts / quotes to build a point), but I don't want this squad becoming more freelance on offense until they learn to clear the d-zone effectively, puck support each other, back check on D, not leave the zone early, come back to assist the D on breakout passes, etc. Let's not get started on the forecheck, dump-ins and puck pursuit, etc., You can give this squad all the freedom they want to "create offense", but they need the damn puck (better puck possession) in order to do that.
