    So... the Sabres are so bad that losing to them means the coach gets fired?

    He still gets to coach the All-Star game.

    Bizarre circumstance.

    The Rangers defense has been utter garbage since he took over, He hasn't adapted to todays NHL.

    His strategy is let them shoot themselves tired just get the rebound and as a result the goalies are getting bombarded and hung out to dry.

    Ranger fans have been pleading for his removal for a few seasons he's destroying the youth.

    Ruff killed Shatty and Pionk and Yandle, Brady Skjei was fantastic the year before Ruff now he's lost, Now its Trouba he's killing.


    I'm also not sold on Quinn but thats another issue.

    he’s playing percentages... not letting his players play the game.

    I believe in giving players some basic guard rails but allow them to go out and play the game.

    what I hate about metrics coaching is it doesn’t take into consideration the human in front of you that’s laying it on the line to play the game.

    i would hate to play for Ruff.

    That could explain the Rangers Tony DeAngelo constantly trolling those who rely on analytics on his twitter feed.

    Right. Because if you just 'let the players play," like they all want their coach to do, and they don't win, then the coach gets blamed. There's only so much that 'coaching' can accomplish in hockey. If the player isn't where he's supposed to be or feeding who he's supposed to be, then maybe. But maybe the Rangers defenders just suck. Ever consider that possibility floflo?
