Not completely true. He's probably working the most with the assistants, who haven't changed. I can't see Ruff dedicating a ton of time to Grigorenko, or Rolston. They've got more important things to do. But Adams, Patrick, and Numminen have time, and that's probably who he's working with... and those guys haven't changed out.

The most important two guys Grigorenko is working with are McKenney and Allaire. And what they do really doesn't have much to do with who the head coach is, unless the Sabres drastically changed what they want their players to do physically since Ruff was fired.
