The ‘other’ Darryl Sutter

From TSN's James Duthie...

Darryl Sutter won't stop talking. 

This isn't an oxymoron. Or a dream sequence in another TSN Films skit.  

This is truth. 

On a sunny evening on the boardwalk of Manhattan Beach, California, the coach of two of the last three Stanley Cup champions is sharing his views on, in no particular order:

- Brothers ("I've played on a team my whole life, not from making a team...I was born into a team.")

- Criminal Minds ("I love that show. We've gotten to meet some of the actors and actresses. It's pretty cool.")

- Eliminating the penalty box ("Why not have them sit on the bench and sell the best six seats in the house?")

- Yoga ("I put it in our training twice this year...so that's a big move right there. But no, I'm not doing it.")

And Duthie continues, with Sutter explaining:

That guy you see on TV? The one with the semi-permanent scowl who can do an entire post game new conference in 25 words or less?  This is not that guy. 

"I've always enjoyed talking one-on-one with people," Sutter says. "I just don't like talking after games. We all saw what happened on the ice. I don't have much to add. Most questions you can answer with 'yes, no...maybe.'  So I don't want to go much beyond that."

“I’ve always enjoyed talking one-on-one with people,” Sutter says. “I just don’t like talking after games. We all saw what happened on the ice. I don’t have much to add. Most questions you can answer with ‘yes, no…maybe.’  So I don’t want to go much beyond that.”
