Brent Sutter one of the WORST coaches to play for

As part of the NHLPA poll they asked which coach would you least like to play for. Coming in at 3rd and 10% of the votes is Brent Sutter. It is also interesting to note that Mike Keenan is number 4 with 9%.

What does everyone think this means for the franchise? I mean, if our players don't enjoy playing for our coaches, how does that reflect our on ice play. I guess it put a new spin on the whole coaching arguments from earlier in the season. My guess is just that a lot of the guys are lazy and think that they don't need to work hard. Sutter's system revolves around a consistent work ethic.

Thoughts?

CBC.ca

Also, 6% think that Brent Sutter demands the most of his players. Do note that the other 4 guys on the list were coaches that were on the "Would most like to play for list."

It doesn't necessarily mean that the Flames don't want to play for B Sutter just that the league doesn't have a good impression of him. When you think of it, there are reasons, outside of his coaching ability, that could have affected his position, the way he left New Jersey, his seemingly negative demeanor, and the fact that he wouldn't have a job in Calgary if not for his brother.

I also wouldn't bother too much with the poll either, Crawford and Tortorella are getting results from their rosters and Keenan isn't in the NHL. That leaves Wilson and Sutter and as much as I don't like Wilson, I still think he's ahead of two teams that have more to work with and his players are producing more this season than last (unlike the players of Clouston or former coach MacLean).

PS Tortorella was number one in asks the most of his players and number two in worst coaches to play for, which should change the implications of Brent being in both.

Absolutely nothing.

I've read and heard nothing to suggest the players on this team don't like playing for Brent Sutter, so I'm not sure where you're getting this information from.

6% of players think he's a hardass and don't think they could handle him, big deal.

"Least like to play for" and "worst coach" are two very different things...

True, Burke never seems to stop raging and whining...
