from George Johnson of the Calgary Herald,
In that, a complete contrast to heart-on-his-sleeve Brian, who camouflaged nothing. And whose pride in possibly adding a Stanley Cup coaching championship in the family is plain for all to see, too.
“It’d be pretty special for Darryl,’’ says big brother. “I mean, you’re the eighth seed and you had to fight to get into the playoffs right until the end of the season. That’s something.
“It would mean a lot, I know. He’s been through a lot of conference finals, both as a player and as a coach.
“I was thinking the other day about Rob Ramage leaving us in St. Louis, and Dougie Gilmour and Joey Mullen and Mark Hunter — we were a farm team for the Calgary Flames in those days. Our guys went to Calgary from St. Louis and they all won a Cup together.
“When that happens, there is a touch of envy involved, almost to the point of feeling a little jealous. But mostly you’re extremely happy and proud of them.
“It takes a lot of dedication, commitment and sacrifice. Darryl went through a lot of things in Calgary. It makes you just about puke listening to what people have to say. But he’s showing everybody what it’s all about now and some people in Calgary should pay attention.
“They might learn something.’’
