07:20 AM ET 06.20 | Lindy Ruff may wind up taking over for the team that got in the way of his team winning the Stanley Cup. The Stars search for a new head coach is moving forward quickly, as [Ruff] is expected to be in Frisco Thursday for a second interview with Stars GM Jim Nill, according to an NHL source. Ruff, 53, coached the Sabres for 15 [seasons]. ... Nill talked to former Rangers coach John Tortorella as part of his trip to the NHL GM meetings in Boston Wednesday and is expected to speak soon with Grand Rapids Griffins coach Jeff Blashill. The Griffins won the AHL championship on Tuesday, so Blashill is just now available for interviews. However, Nill served as his boss for most of this season when Nill was assistant GM of the Red Wings.

Report from Ft. Worth Star Telegram (used to be a respected paper but is now akin to dog training) is that Lindy Ruff will be the next coach of the Stars.



Oh well - moving on.

When you think about it, Buffalo's sports glory ended when the last century ended.
