He changed things up very quickly and I don't care if Richards and Carter were each cloned and their doubles dressed, coaching was a very big factor in their success. He gets players to buy in, he is known for that.
Remember, Sutter got turfed from the Flames for his failings as GM, even though ownership is soft in that organization and still is, as verified by, well, by just about every single personnel move they make, and as importantly, don't make. He got a new lease on his career coaching in L.A.
Thankfully, the Rangers already have that kind of coach.
Where in my post or previous posts did I say/imply/deny that Sutter was not a major factor to their success?
You need to put my response in context.
