Garbutt was suspended for slew-footing Dustin Byfuglien of the Winnipeg Jets. Stars' coach Lindy Ruff is hoping that Garbutt has learned his lesson. "We’ve had a lot of discussions, (GM) Jim (Nill) and I have had discussions with him, because we just feel it’s that important that he change the way he approaches some of those situations when he’s on the ice," said Ruff. "Because when he plays the way he can play, he’s been a very good player for us. But we have to find a happy medium for him." Sun, Dec 21, 2014 10:04:00 AM
