Dallas Fills Coaching Vacancy with Lindy Ruff

June 22, 2013 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
Lindy Ruff is the 22nd coach in the history of the Dallas Stars.
Can Lindy Ruff turn the Dallas Stars around?

Wow. It was Freaky Friday in the NHL coaching ranks. First we had the coaches fired by Vancouver and the Rangers switch teams. And then Lindy Ruff, fired after spending over 14 seasons coaching the Sabres, landed on his feet in Big D.

The decision to hire Ruff didn’t seem to vex Stars General Manager Jim Nill much. Ruff was the first candidate he interviewed and after a second interview, the job was Ruff’s.

In taking over from Glen Gulutzan, fired after Dallas failed to make the playoffs for the fifth straight season, Ruff becomes the 22nd coach in franchise history.

The longest-tenured coach in the NHL, Ruff was canned 17 games into the season after Buffalo struggled to a 6-10-1 record. While the Sabres rebounded to finish .500, they missed the playoffs for a second straight season.
It is Ruff’s experience – plus his energy – that drew Dallas to him to try to end its extended funk.

In the video below, Ruff discusses how excited he is about this new opportunity.

The Stability Ruff had in Buffalo is desperately needed in Dallas, Nill suggested. So the Stars bought in for four years, hoping to tap into some of the magic that allowed Ruff to compile a 571-432-162 record and take the Sabres to the playoffs eight times in parts of 15 seasons.

Ruff’s credibility and knowledge of the game were also selling features for Dallas.

Now it’s your turn. Can Ruff turn around a franchise that’s gotten worse in each of the last two seasons and has been in a tailspin for half a decade? Tell us what you think in the comments below.

Chicago Cubs Offseason Moves

December 18, 2012 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
He hasn’t had any sustained success above A-ball and his 2012 season was reduced to just 10 appearances because of shoulder surgery. We’re not overly bullish on this addition and given that he cleared waivers and was outrighted to the minors, no one else is exactly holding their breath for Gutierrez to suddenly figure it out.

John Farrell Returns to the BoSox

Back in the day, teams tended to wait until after the World Series to start shaping their plans for the following season. Someone should have mentioned this to the Red Sox, Jays, Marlins, Athletics, and Diamondbacks — all of whom who had very busy weekends.

2012-2013 RotoRob NBA Draft Kit: Top Offseason Moves

September 29, 2012 | by Trevor Blake | Comments Comments Off
Atlanta’s moves were dwarfed by some of their Eastern Conference opponents, but it was still a pretty solid offseason for the Hawks. Yup, the team’s most visible player — Joe Johnson — is gone to Brooklyn, but the club acquired Lou Williams, one of the NBA’s top instant offense bench options.
