'Ruff is entering his fifth season with the Sabres, but there was never a sense this was his team. No matter the coach, it seemed the Sabres always belonged to Hasek, which is why most everyone tiptoed around his ego. The Sabres this year appear more rejuvenated after a busy summer, almost as if they had been set free from The Dominator's long shadow.'
