How would Lindy fare with Sather feeding him A GREAT CORE + the elite talent that is always willing to sign in NY?

It was part of what made Ruff impressive imo...
Buffalo, of which Ruff was a big part, did a good job at building some really good teams. Buffalo was the best team in the NHL in 05', but they ran out of D's against Carolina who basically got a pass against a team that where without 3-5 Ds all series. Ottawa had insane talent, and Buffalo sent them golfing.

The only reason I am not that high on Ruff is that he kind of has felt a little tired lately. Right or wrong, it felt like he let his team become a victim.
