ok my biggest thing with ruff is that he claims to believe in chemistry and then he changes up the lin pairing if they dont work for 2 games......i think if he left them all the same and just used each line for the appropriate amount of time based on the situation of the game, then after being together for a lengthy period of time these guys will start to look great. I mean looking at the roster of the team it should be one of the best teams in the league

I'm not defending Ruff AT ALL! But you do know, that all head coaches in the NHL change up the line combos. Some do it quite often, and every game.

I find his line mgmt to be a strength and not a weakness. If a line gets busted its the players fault, not his. This is a playoff hunt not preseason. Produce now or lose.

Scotty Bowman was a well known for doing this.
