‘There are only five coaches in the 90-plus year history of the NHL who have won more games with a single franchise than Lindy Ruff. He has racked up more than 540 wins with Buffalo since 1997. And few coaches have been able to do it in the modern era without losing grasp of the locker room. Ruff has done that. His players believe in him. He has been in some big moments, getting to the Stanley Cup finals once and the conference finals three times. But he has not yet accomplished what Laviolette has – not even with the benefit of nearly double the amount of games.’
