“Ken came out and said that, but it wasn’t important for me to have that publicly. It’s more important what happens internally.”
Darryl Sutter made these comments in response to Ken King coming out last week and publicly endorsing the Flames GM. We all are aware of Sutter’s dealings with the media and how he, how do I say this, would rather eat hot garbage than listen to questions from television, radio or print journalists.
He constantly makes fun of the media’s knowledge of the cap or irrational question lines in news conferences. Now, I understand that the ‘Cap’ has a lot of ‘ins and outs and what-have-yous’, but does Sutter possibly consider that some of these journalists may have done their homework and seen that the Flames are in serious trouble when it comes to the cap.
It seems though, that with King’s statement the team will be more media friendly and the irritable Sutter will have to suck up his distaste for the keyboard jockeys and face the music on a more regular basis.
Endear yourself to the media D-Sutts, it might win yourself a few fans back.
“We were all disappointed that we didn’t make the playoffs,” Sutter said. “We had a better record than Philadelphia or Montreal. We could just as easily be sitting here talking and be in the same situation as Philadelphia.”
Please don’t tell me he just used the ‘East vs. West’ excuse again??????
The Flames are in the WESTERN CONFERENCE!!! The Flames could not be in the same position as Philly. If that were the case than St. Louis could be there as well. I don’t see Larry Pleau coming out and making these idiotic statements. Don’t insult the fan base any further. You are already in a deep dark hole in many fans minds, so take some advice from Homer Simpson and “Dig up stupid!”
This has been,
Newman on the Flames
