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.
So Kreuger is only following the same pattern that is expected of all coaches...including Ruff and Babchuk. Why is it that he should be fired immediately if he is no different from the apparent "saviors"?
