Lindy Ruff Done In Dallas

FRISCO, Texas - Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that Lindy Ruff will not return as head coach for the 2017-18 season and the organization will immediately begin the process of hiring a new head coach.

"I want to personally thank Lindy for his commitment and professionalism over the four years that he served as our head coach in Dallas," said Nill. "Lindy is not only a highly respected coach, he more importantly is a great person and an outstanding family man whom I have the utmost respect for on and off the ice."

No way Lindy gets hired here. His coaching style is so radically different than the Red Wings decades old style. Lindy coaches a fast break high octane offense attack with heavy forecheck and almost no defense responsibility.

I’m in!

But seriously…. does anyone think a new coach will really make much of a difference in Dallas?  They seem a fairly flawed roster regardless of coach, and I think their overachievement last season may have set some very unrealistic expectations.

Every coach out there is automatically the top candidate for Detroit. This is getting bad.
