Meet Darryl And Darryl Sutter

from Cam Cole of the Vancouver Sun,

Then the L.A. Kings coach walks in, sits down and no one can hear half of what he’s saying.

A radio guy begins his question with a speech, and Sutter carves him a new one. A Kings website writer asks an earnest question and the coach’s irritation is a living, breathing thing. He gives a dismissive two-word response.

Silence falls. Seconds tick by. Reporters exchange “Not me” looks, hoping someone, anyone will volunteer to be the next victim.

“Yeah, we like watching them,” said Kings centre Jarret Stoll, of their coach’s podium performances....

“There’s probably two different Darryls,” said captain Dustin Brown. “When he’s in the media, he’s very selective in what he says. I think he’s probably more upfront and honest with individuals in our room, in the sense that I think he knows how to push the right buttons at the right times. We see both sides of it.”

“There are guys in the (media) business, in the fraternity, who want everybody to think in press conferences that they invented the game. I’m not into that.”

Now, I wanna watch his pressers.

I’ve been addicted to his pressers since 2012. You never know which Darryl will show up and what will come out if his mouth.
