Still remember Tie Domi trash talking Ruff though (eg., His opinion of Lindy Ruff as a player: "He's Ruff at home but Lindy on the road").

Had to work with a budget team (like Trotz does in Nashville). Except for recent history - where the owner went out and spent a ton of dough on questionable acquisitions (eg., Ehrhoff as a player was allright - it's the contract that was the problem)
