Although it's nice to think that Ruff can turn this group into the 06-07 Sabres, our roster as it stands isn't all that comparable to that team. I think Ruff can improve our transition game, but I also have a feeling we'd be trapping a lot more as well.
I don't think either of those Buffalo teams that went to the ECF had a bunch of real burners up front.
