Lindy Ruff can be grumpy in the best of times, so it's not hard to imagine how he's feeling now. He proved it in practice today.
The Sabres were doing five-on-five drills, and they again commited a poor decision with the puck. You know, the ones they've been doing consistently, where the pass is intercepted at the blue line and the opposing team skates down ice on an odd-man rush.
Well, Ruff had had enough.
"You can't [expletive] do that," he screamed. "You turn the puck over there, we're [expletive]. We're [expletive]. We're [expletive]. I can't be any clearer than that."
No doubt, the message was clear. Whether it sank in, we'll have to see.
