Is this guy really that good?
He must be, he wasn't coaching the Oilers

Give a coach a bad roster and they'll do poorly, Ruff is no exception. Babchuk is one of the best coaches in the league, but he loses Lidstrom and they are struggling to make the playoffs with rumors that he's on his way out. Coaches aren't miracle workers, without a major team overhaul, anyone the Oilers hire is going to look bad.

There were a lot of rumors last year that the Oilers were holding off on the Kreuger decision because they were waiting to see what Buffalo did with Ruff though. So everyone might get their wish and we'll see some more deck chair shuffling on the Titanic.
