Bringing in a coach with pedigree like Ruff/Tippet/Babcock/Tortorella/Laviolette is exactly what we need. These guys have cups, presidents trophies, Jack Adams awards etc. and they're not dinosaurs. Krueger has none of those accomplishments on his resume and neither did Renney. If a player gets out of line with a coach like that he gets shipped out because management won't be afraid to side with the coach in that scenario.
2009/2010 had nothing to do with injuries and Tambo bringing in a crap vet goalie.
Look at some of the names that played d for that team and you'll realize how pitiful a team it was.
