If Canada won the WHC, would you still hold to the same opinion?
Or is just based on how Ruff has utilized Hall?
Even if Canada wins it all, that doesn't excuse Ruff from not knowing the players from the west. He didn't properly prepare for this tournament and has made poor(imo) lineup decisions because of that. If they win it all, it will be off the backs of the star players(Stamkos, Giroux, PK) doing their thing and will have little to do with Ruff doing anything more than playing them.
Ruff may once have been a good coach, but he no longer is.
