To bring in Ruff would be to bring in someone who has failed over and over again at the NHL level. Yes, that's a simplistic way of looking at it, but so is assuming that bringing in someone without NHL coaching experience would lead to short-term failure. I'm not advocating we hire a guy like Messier or Graves. I'm more attracted to guys who've done well head coaching at the AHL or Junior level, or are assistant coaches on recently successful franchises in the NHL.
