'Ruff brought his defensive convictions to Buffalo and went about installing a system designed to reduce the insane workload heaped upon Sabres goaltenders. The progress has been immense. The Sabres allowed 2,560 shots in Ruff's first season. The number dropped to 2,461 his second season. Then to 2,208. Last season, Buffalo goaltenders faced only 2,195 shots.'
