Finding Minnesota Wild coach could be rough … or Ruff

‘Ruff, 51, whose team is in the playoffs, could become a free agent at season’s end. Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher is a friend of Mike Ramsey, the former Wild assistant who played with Ruff for years with the Sabres. Ramsey would seem certain to endorse Ruff for the Wild if asked. Ruff, though, could cost $1.5 million a year.’
