V is for victory

Those of us outside of Calgary certainly don’t believe Darryl Sutter is any kind of crook. He is the type of coach you want to ensure that they forge on, because we all know that a team is not defeated when they lose, they are defeated when they quit. He hates the summer because he hates golfing.

He knows that by the time you get ready, drive out there, play 18 holes and come home, you’ve blown seven hours. There are better things to do with your time. He ranks hockey as chief among those things.

He can take anything because the tougher it gets, the cooler he gets. He became that way because competitive sports builds the will to win better than anything else.

You can’t get him angry because one can only be angered by those that they respect.

I guess what I’m trying to say here is, Darryl Sutter reminds me a lot of Richard Nixon in that picture.
