Ruff A Survivor

from the CP via the Sporting News,

Lindy Ruff figures there’s no way to put together this kind of streak without a little good fortune.

As the longest-tenured man in a volatile profession, the Buffalo Sabres coach doesn’t get surprised when he hears that another member of the fraternity has lost his job. It’s something he’s seen happen time and again.

There have been 137 coaching changes in the NHL since Ruff was hired by the Sabres in July 1997, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. While that number alone is staggering, consider the anecdotal evidence - Craig Hartsburg has now lost three NHL head coaching jobs over that period.

All the while, Ruff keeps plugging away with the Sabres.
