Want to bet Lindy Ruff will end up in Vancouver? You can

By John Vogl

Lindy Ruff stood strong in Buffalo for 16 years while coaches all around him lost their jobs. Now, whenever someone gets fired, Ruff gets mentioned as a replacement.

He's the betting man's choice to end up in Vancouver.

The Canucks fired Alain Vigneault this week, and the gambling website has installed Ruff as the favorite to take over.

Here are the odds, with the usual disclaimer: Gambling is bad. Your money is much better spent on concerts, women and whiskey.

Who will be the next head coach of the Vancouver Canucks?      

Lindy Ruff                                 2/1

Dallas Eakins                            5/2

Dave Tippett                             5/2

Scott Arniel                               9/1

Tom Renney                              9/1

Doug Houda                             12/1

Larry Robinson                          12/1


Who will be under contract for the New York Rangers for Game One of the 2013-2104 Season?

John Tortorella and Brad Richards                      7/2

John Tortorella Only                                          5/1

Brad Richards Only                                           7/4

Neither                                                              1/1
