"He is the worst player in the NHL right now. Im serious you guys. He couldn't play here right now."

I thought to myself it was a harsh exaggertation but somewhat typical of Brian. But if you have ever had a chat with Suttsy' you know...the more drinks he's had the more correct his opinions are in his mind. So, I dont recall making the slightest argument.

Sutter...ended up getting fired as Head Coach in Bentley a few months later and he's been very "Anti-Bentley" ever since. Its been ugly.

And as much as I insist he did & said more than enough to warrant his firing times...making people wonder if he had lost it altogether...

...He was ahead of the curve on his Ryan Smyth asessment. I give him that much.
Really appreciate that story. I think that will make my day.
