Good riddance. I didn't like him one bit. That timeout at the end of the game still irks me.
Exactly. I never cared for the guy, but his firing weeks after he pulled that no-class stunt makes me warm n' fuzzy today.
You guys know that this is how it went down, right:
Bruins have last line change as home team.
Ruff puts skilled players out.
Bruins put out MacDermid.
Ruff worries that MacDermid is going to crank one of his EuroFruits.
Ruff calls time out in order to get Scott on the ice to avoid any final seconds stupidity.
Puck drops, game ends without incidnet.
What's wrong with that?
Simple. Tell your team to be disciplined and not drop the gloves. It's not like one guy is going to haul off and assault someone on the ice. That is a ludicrous, bush-league, load of bull. Not to mention instigating a fight within the last 5 mins of a game is a fine for the coach is it not? Has CJ ever done that against a team? Is Boston known for starting fights at the end of the game? Why did Ruff send out skill guys with 13 something seconds left in the game? Is Boston somehow magically going to put in 3 goals in that time span? Stop making excuses. It may have been within his rights, but it was unnecessary.
EDIT: I also lauged at the EuroFruits comment. Nice, I like it.
