Sutter had more to work with that people around here like to admit, with a coach that has the ability to build a system around the strengths of these players I think they end up with home ice in teh 1st round, but Sutter is a junior coach and doesn't have the ability to change him system to fit his players.

The guy is a hack and if he ever ends up with an NHL job again it will be too soon
Little bit of a harsh post from someone who had no idea of how the team was run. You don't know if Sutter was influenced or anything like that. Sutter wasnt a terrible coach like you say, he coached the team to a winning record every year just not playoffs. Just because he didn't work out in Calgary doesn't make him a bad coach, to expect him to ice a top 4 team in the conference each year is unlikely. Until you can tell me strategy after strategy and how the team was exactly run don't go making assumptions and implying the flames struggles lie on his shoulders. Big words from a guy who has never been in the shoes of an NHL coach before
I understand as a fan we judge based on the record, but you don't know what goes on behind the scenes. Sutter is a good guy and is not a hack like you describe, if he were I don't think he would have been picked to coach the Canadian Team right now.
