Wins? The Sabres are 7th for most wins since the lockout.

Ruff would be walking into a GREAT team in NY, pieces in place. Ruff can be hard on players, but rarely do players say bad things about him. Sure, there are a couple, but he tends to have good relationships with players. Heck he lasted 15 years in one place, you have to be good with people to do that.

I want to see Ruff win a cup. I dont want to see the Rangers win one obviously, but I think Ruff would win a cup within 3 years with the Rangers.
I'm one of a few here who wouldn't have a big problem with Lindy Ruff. The mustache would have to go, though.
