Ruff coached the Sabres to 8 playoff years and 6 misses. Most of that success was early when Hasek was in his prime.

He made it to the 3rd round twice post Hasek- with the Briere and Drury (small players) led teams.

He's from Edmonton. He's an obvious choice and Krueger had his chance in my mind. It's time for the team to grow up. Ruff is an established NHL bench boss. He's 53 years old - which is the exact same age as Ralph.

It seems really silly not to give Ruff a shot with a three year deal this summer. Make a statement to the team and bring in a Jack Adams winner while you have the chance.

Florida, Tampa, Dallas, Philly and other teams are probably circling right now too.
