PLAYERS: Lindy Ruff
TEAMS: Buffalo Sabres
Washington-capitals
Having never attended college let alone taught a class, Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff isn't familiar with the tweed jacket dress code favored by some professors. So he went with the track suit. You know, he said, ''the coach's uniform.'' That's fine, because this wasn't a conventional course he was teaching. Season or no season, Ruff and the 100-or-so Sabres' employees went back to school last month by attending ''Sabres University.'' It was a two-week series of courses to help everyone better understand and appreciate how the entire operation works, and to boost staff morale during the NHL lockout. The courses ranged from ''The Do's and Don'ts of Social Media,'' to ''The Scouting Process.'' Ruff taught a class explaining how he gets his defenseman involved in an offensive rush.
