Lindy Ruff to be Named NJ Devils HC

Recommended Posts

Wow.  I thought he was done with HC gigs.  I hope he does well.

Not unexpected, and not the best situation to inherit.

I hope he does well, but not at our expense.

That's a nice thing.  I wish him well.

I also like NJD hiring a rival NYR assistant coach.

 

But according to the Devils website and wikipedia, Tom Fitzgerald is still only the interim GM.  Interesting to see an interim make a permanent head coach hire.

As we have been reminded repeatedly since Lindy left here, no coaching hire is ever permanent.  
 

Wishing Lindy luck.  But not too much.

Good for him.  Not happy he's coming back to the Wales Conference.  Would prefer he be out west.

Fitzgerald is now the GM.

Good for Lindy...I never thought I’d long for the Ruff/Regier years(end of their run as Sabres).

I thought the consensus was that he was “outdated” from being able to coach in the current game?

He's still sexay though.

Not really. He hit Luke Adam in the head with stick and everyone thought he’d lost his mind.

Turns out that Luke Adam sucked and Lindy was trying to knock some hockey sense into him. 
 

Am I right?👀

Or that hit ruined Luke Adam for the rest of his career.

What year was the helmet hit by Ruff?

Adam was looking good in 10-11, and was never as good after that. If that hit was at Niagara camp  in 11-12, then it may have ruined him.

 THAT ruined him? Luke’s biggest problem was skating. He couldn’t master his biggest problem so he never had a chance to work on all the little ones. 
 

Maybe he could have been an awesome NHLer?

Always liked Lindy.  I'm glad he got another shot as HC.

So we could have had GM Dudley and HC Ruff.  Are we better off with GM Adams and HC Krueger?

Terry and Kim see things that fans don’t see. 
 

I think Lindy has run his course in Buffalo, but wish him well in the swamps.
