The Darryl Sutter Way

from Eric Francis of Sportsnet,

If Craig Conroy hadn’t seen it before, he might not have believed it was possible.

Just as Darryl Sutter did almost two decades earlier when he transformed Conroy’s struggling Calgary club into a Stanley Cup finalist, the Jolly Rancher has reinvented the Flames once again.

Contrary to popular belief heading into the season, this team is good.

As in, 7-1-3 good.

And the man chiefly responsible for bringing the best out of a previously beleaguered bunch is indeed Sutter.

“When I played it out in my mind, this is kind of what I was hoping for – this is what you think Darryl can do,” said Conroy, the Flames centre-turned assistant GM when asked how much credit Sutter deserves for the team’s shocking start.

“I think a lot of this has to do with Darryl. I know it’s early, but this is a Darryl Sutter hockey team.”
