And yes, there was definitely speculation among Devils fans that Sutter did not like European players and his treatment of Elias (who was basically a coach's dream before and after Sutter) was a part of it.
Sutter told Hasek that "only canadians knew how to win hockey games" and were hinting at that there were more to the story. Wish they couldve made a bigger story about that story instead.
