According to just about every Calgary-area media outlet, including those fine folks at TSN, Calgary Flames Head Coach/GM Darryl Sutter has stepped down as Head Coach, naming assistant Jim Playfair as new Head Coach.
The Flames coaching staff now includes Playfair and assistants Rob Cookson, Rick Preston & newcomer Wayne Fleming.
Acording to espn.com, Jeff Hackett has decided to call it a career. Vertigo is the cause. The Flyers wasted no time in replacing him, they got Sean Burke. I remember Jeff as a youngster playing goal for the Islanders.
