Video: Darryl Sutter entertains during press conference

May 27, 2013, 12:09 AM EDT

For all the complaints about cliches, post-game press conferences can be entertaining precisely because head coaches and players might not be totally over a win or loss.

New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella kept people guessing at what he would (sometimes barely) say next, but if hockey fans want a new baffling bench boss to follow, Darryl Sutter might be the fit.

Sutter’s presser following the Los Angeles Kings’ 2-1 Game 6 loss to the San Jose on Sunday was just … priceless:

With that amazing display in mind, this seems like a good time to roll out some Getty Images of Sutter making funny faces:

(There are a lot of them, seriously.)

    Two things about Mr Sutter. I can only assume, based on the Kings’ success since he came aboard, that he is a splendid coach. But, while I admit I’ve not seen a lot of interviews with him, I’ve yet to see one where he sounds smarter than a box of rocks. And his face almost always looks like he’s in a British gurning contest.

    So that’s who Jonathan Toews goes to for smiling lessons.

    Sometimes iPhone apps suck. Especially when you want to hear or see a video posted and it won’t let you. Those are my sometimes, anyway.

      Now that I’ve looked it up, I can only wonder what his motivational speeches to his team are like. I also want to try and imagine what his interview for a head coaching job would have been like. He’s obviously doing a great job, but with press conferences like that, it makes me think even I could do it. I say that with all due respect and as little insult as possible.

    Did he have time to imbibe between the final horn and the presser? Or is he always that way?

    Him and S. Stalone were seperated at birth.

    he’s a helluva good coach from a great hockey family. the guy was also a great hockey player. im sure his players would skate through a brick wall for him.

      good comment friend …

      funnily enough, it was right after coach Sutter’s hiring that I fell in love ‘again’ with my beloved Kings, who I first fell for back in ’73 … Darryl Sutter is ‘my’ kind of guy, being a crazy, different, brilliant and immensely entertaining person … tonight friends as I lay my head to the pillow, I will pray for a glorious King’s victory on Tuesday night …

      GO KINGS GO !!! … TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
