'Ruff probably would have been fired several times had he worked for any other organization, any other GM. His club hasn't made the playoffs since 2001 and hasn't won more than one round since almost taking the Cup. But Darcy Regier cut his organizational teeth with the dynastic New York Islanders and knew the stability he was after when he assumed control of the Sabres six weeks before hiring Ruff.'
