Larry Rupp?


I guess you missed that the original poster and many subsequent replies have his name wrong...

On a related note, I wish Shero would have signed Mike Ruff last off-season.

I'm serious. I don't know if they do or not. If they didn't, maybe that's why nobody cares that he's won nothing. If they DO care about hockey, then I have no answer.


Yes, people here do give a %#@* about hockey. And to top it off most Sabres fans I know around here want Ruff fired.

Buffalo is a very good hockey town.

Except they rely on Hamilton/the GTA to keep them afloat.

Guess this is the shining example of big names don't = big success. Buffalo on paper looked to be real good this year. In practice not so much.

I always thought of Ruff as a "1920's" coach, with the name Lindy Ruff and the big moustache
