Sabres give Rangers permission to speak with Ruff, report says; coaching candidate has 'phone calls' today

By John Vogl

Lindy Ruff and the New York Rangers reportedly have permission to talk with one another. The former Sabres coach was scheduled to talk to someone important today.

Ruff is being honored by the Clarence Chamber of Commerce as its inaugural "Sportsman of the Year," but he skipped the accompanying golf tournament this afternoon because he had important phone calls scheduled, an event representative said. He is expected to attend the award ceremony this evening.

The New York Rangers, who have a coaching vacancy, sought and received permission from the Sabres to interview Ruff, ESPN.com wrote today while confirming a "Hockey Night in Canada" report from the weekend. Ruff is still being paid by the Sabres, who relieved him from his coaching duties in February.
