If there is something Lindy knows how to do, and do well, it's getting the most out of his top forwards. Briere, Drury, Vanek, Pominville, Afinogenov, Stafford (until recently), Connolly even, and many more I'm sure I'm forgetting. All these guys at one point or another were very good players under Ruff. And look at that list of names? All different playstyles from Drury to Afinogenov, and Ruff made them play and play well.

Ruff has been in the game a long time, and is a very intelligent hockey mind. I think we would be lucky to have him.
