I think it's a bit of a stretch to blame Ruskell for the Babin mess. Ruskell acquired him in a trade without giving up anything of value (Michael Boulware), and then Holmgren wouldn't play him. I don't believe Babin was even cut, I thought he left via free agency, but I could be wrong on that point.
