After a four-week journey, the Calgary Flames finally have a new coach. In a press conference Saturday, the Flames formally announced that former San Jose coach Darryl Sutter (brother of former Flames coach Brian Sutter & former Flames forward Ron Sutter) is now the Flames head coach. Sutter replaces outgoing Flames coach Greg Gilbert, who was ousted following the Flames 11 losses in 12 games freefall, and interm coach and full-time Special Assistant to the GM Al MacNeil (67), who in 11 games coached the Flames to a 4-5-2 record. Only time will tell if Sutter can turn the Flames around.

FLAMES COACHES (Listed with years coached & best finish)
Bernie Geoffrion [Atlanta]; 1972-75 (Fired); 4th in Division

I have never been impressed with Darryl Sutter. He did a good job of turning around San Jose but the talent on that team was never utilized to its fullest extent. With all of the scorers on that team you figure he would have loosened up the defensive reigns a bit.

I heard the interview the sports radio station here in Calgary did with Sutter after the announcment of his hiring.

It was quite possibly the worst interview I have ever heard.

And who said that Ted Nolan has been blackballed???

What does this guy have to do to get a coaching gig. I guess winning coach of the year is not good enough huh?

"And who said that Ted Nolan has been blackballed??? What does this guy have to do to get a coaching gig."

... One thing that a guy SHOULDN'T do if he wants another coaching gig is to go over the GM's head and ask the owner to fire said GM (especially if this is the GM that took a chance and hired the guy in the first place).

This is what Ted Nolan did. This is why he has been unable to get an NHL coaching job ever since. It has nothing to do with racism or any other form of prejudice. He is untrustworthy and manipulative.

There is much more to the story then just that. His contract was up, and Muckler would only offer him a One-year contract. That was not guarenteed. This was of course AFTER he won Coach of the year.
