Brent Sutter Has Come a Long Way This Season

From George Johnson in the Calgary Herald:

He’s swayed a veteran group over to his way of thinking when all appeared lost.

That, people, is an Adams-worthy achievement. Not that he gives two hoots, but if the Flames do reach the post-season, he richly deserves consideration at the June ‘do in Vegas. If they could somehow crack the Top Four and nail down home-ice for the first round, it should be a slam dunk.

It seems a lifetime, not 82 days, that not-so-long-ago morning in Anaheim when the stench of change permeated the Honda Center like a gas leak, when the coach’s future apparently hung by a thread.

John Stevens has the Flyers riding high, as predicted.

Oops, guess he doesn’t pay much attention to the Eastern Conference.

To be fair, you don’t need to know anything to be able to write about anything.

I guess it would be the first time the Adams was awarded for creating a crisis before you solved it.

Made me laugh. smile Although I wonder, which Sutter do we blame? Admittedly, I’ve been out of the game for a while, but I figure Darryl was always good at chaos himself. Perhaps Brent was the innocent party! (Well, relatively speaking…) wink
