‘The move is a surprise and not a surprise all at the same time. It’s a surprise because, for so long, Ruff had been the coach there and never seemed to be under any fire from the men above him, particularly GM and friend Regier. It seemed that no matter what happened with the team, Ruff wasn’t going anywhere. Regier mentioned how difficult this was for him to do.’
