The Sutter System

from Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun,

For more than half a season, (Kevin) Weekes has watched his former coach with his new team and seen Sutter try to implement his way of doing things on a Flames team that has battled through its ups and downs, yet still went into last night’s clash with the Colorado Avalanche atop the NHL’s Northwest Division.

Weekes, who retired after a 13-year pro career, says nothing he’s seen from Sutter has come as a surprise to him.

“He has his system, in terms of the way he wants to do things, what he believes in, why he believes in them and how he wants them executed. He’s very steadfast in those things.

“I know those four things are big for him,” Weekes said.

He understands making things interesting for the coach in Calgary is that New Jersey has had a way of doing things for a generation, compared to a Flames team that had little structure the past couple of years.
