LINDY RUFF RUMORS & GOSSIP

Ruff's speech, Benn's play, vault Stars to 4-2 win over Ducks

Whatever Lindy Ruff said to his Stars after the first intermission Wednesday night can now be nominated for motivational speech of the year. The Ducks were without Ryan Getzlaf, the NHL’s second-leading scorer this season. The Ducks were without Teemu Selanne, the 15th all-time leading scorer in NHL history. And the Stars responded to this golden opportunity to tie the series...

Stars embracing shift back to Dallas

FRISCO, Texas -- For a team trailing their best-of-7 first-round playoff series with the Anaheim Ducks 2-0, the Dallas Stars didn't sound like a team doubting themselves after practice on Sunday morning at their team headquarters in Frisco. And there are two big reasons for that optimism heading into Game 3 on Monday night at American Airlines Center. For one, Dallas has more...

Stars Get Ruff 600th Win in Edging Sabres

DALLAS -- In a way, it was almost poetic that Lindy Ruff got his 600th career win as an NHL head coach against his former team, the Buffalo Sabres. The Dallas Stars and Sabres went toe-to-toe on Monday night at American Airlines Center, but in the end a power-play goal by Dallas rookie winger Alex Chiasson, one that went in off his shin guard, was the difference in a 3-2 win. Ruff...

Stars' Ruff mum on possibly reaching 600 wins vs. Sabres

DALLAS -- Almost true to form, the calm, cool and collected Lindy Ruff was downplaying the possibility that if the Dallas Stars beat the Buffalo Sabres, the same club he coached for most of his NHL career, on Monday night at American Airlines Center, that Ruff would become the 12th coach in league history to reach 600 wins. But don't try to tell him how significant such a milestone...

Lindy Ruff will be back to work soon

Lindy Ruff might not be unemployed for long. Freshly fired after 15 years behind the Buffalo Sabres' bench (replaced by Ron Rolston of the AHL Rochester Americans), Ruff could be entrenched as head coach of another squad shortly -- if he's interested in taking on a new challenge right away. The general consensus amongst NHL coaches and general managers seems to be that the...

Do the Buffalo Sabres need to fire Lindy Ruff?

I’ve long been a defender of Lindy Ruff. For years, he coached teams that ranked in the bottom of the league in payroll in a cap-free world. As the longest tenured head coach in the NHL, he has lead some squads that overachieved and for a while it was easy to blame outside forces for the team’s recent shortcomings.  After all, when the fields evened after the full-season lockout...
