Sutter Brothers Everywhere

from Allan Maki of the Globe and Mail,

Down at the Pengrowth Sutterdome, they are poised for the big announcement that could come at any moment.

Brent Sutter is about to be named the new head coach of the Calgary Flames, which means there will soon be Sutters in the front office, with the farm team, on the ice and behind the players’ bench, where two other Sutter brothers have tried their luck to mixed reviews.

Naturally, some NHL observers are deeply concerned. They wonder, “What’s next? You come to the rink, park your car in the Ron Sutter section. A Sutter takes your ticket, another sells you popcorn, another shows you to your seat and another escorts you out if you call the coach a bum.”

But with general manager Darryl Sutter close to hiring his brother, the most compelling question is whether Brent Sutter is the right choice or merely a convenient namesake.
