Darryl Sutter Compared Flames to One of the Worst Teams in the League as Hopelessness Grows

BY AARON    MARCH 11, 2023  (2:21 PM)
Following significant off-season changes, the Calgary Flames are experiencing difficulties. Head Coach Darryl Sutter's comparison of the team to one of the poorest performing teams in the league has made it very clear how hopeless the team is.

Flames... as bad as the Anaheim Ducks?



Darryl Sutter, who has a reputation for being a controversial head coach in the league, has experienced both success and difficult seasons, but the current one may be his worst yet.

It seems apparent that he has lost control of his locker room, and is failing to optimize players such as Jonathan Huberdeau. His recent remarks have added to the growing sense of disappointment among fans and analysts.


Following a 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks, Sutter made a hopeless comparison of the Flames to the bottom-dwelling team.

During the post-game interview, when asked if the Flames were underperforming against a non-playoff team like the Ducks, Sutter swiftly responded with his comment.

Well, neither are we.

Sixteen make it, 16 don't. That's why we do it every night. I don't put a whole lot into that, at all. I don't think there's enough of a gap.

Rasmus Andersson, a top defenseman on the team, expressed his frustration equally after the team's loss to the Ducks.

Honestly, I'm so frustrated.

We didn't score. It's the easy way to say it — we just didn't score today. We had a lot of looks. We're dominating the game in the third and we can't get the tying goal or the leading goal.

It sucks.

Given that Rasmus Andersson is not a scorer, his frustrations about the team's performance are understandable.

The situation with the Calgary Flames appears to be spiraling out of control, and there are mounting doubts about Darryl Sutter's ability to turn things around.
