Tyler Toffoli pledges his loyalty towards Sutter, betraying his team.

Several Calgary Flames players, including Nazem Kadri, Jonathan Huberdeau, and Jakob Pelletier, have recently gone public with their concerns about coach Darryl Sutter.

Dean Molberg from The Nation Network reports that several other players on the team have also expressed the same sentiment, stating that if Sutter remains as coach next season, they will request to be traded.


Toffoli expressed high praise for Sutter during the recording of the Empty Netters podcast, and here are his exact words:


« Darryl's my favourite coach I've ever had. He's the most intelligent coach. Everything he does is for a reason That's what helped me be successful in the NHL is learning under him and how to be a pro.«

Toffoli's positive remarks about Sutter, which could potentially enhance the coach's reputation, may not sit well with some of his teammates who have been growing increasingly discontent with Sutter. If the Flames fail to make the playoffs, Sutter's position as coach, with just one year left on his contract, could be in jeopardy.
