Darryl Sutter said some stuff about the Western Conference being hard

Nov 27, 2013, 6:11 PM EDT


If you’re not visiting LA Kings Insider on a regular basis, chances are you’re missing out on some pretty fantastic Darryl Sutter quotes.

Take this morning, when the Kings’ head coach was asked about tonight’s big Pacific Division showdown with the San Jose Sharks, and apparently responded with this:

“We play 26 or 29 division games. You can’t come up with the real numbers. Whoever wins tonight, fine. Somebody is going to win. Somebody is going to get two, somebody might get one, and somebody might get none. That’s the way it is. It’s either three-and-two, two-and-[three], or two-and-two. Right? That’s what the division is, and it’s not balanced it because of 16-14. You can’t come up with numbers. I mean, I know now the big thing is – I’ve said it before. They should just come to me first, right? Because I said, ‘You know what? It’s going to take at least 100 points to make the playoffs.’ So now, everybody’s like ‘Oh, there’s going to be eight teams…’ I said that. Heck, that’s how good the teams are.”

To be perfectly honestly, he kind of lost us with all that “three-and-two” and “two-and-two” stuff. But he’s right about the Western Conference being tough; and it may indeed take 100 points to make the playoffs.

By the way, the Kings are 7-0-3 in their last 10, thanks in large part to the play of backup goalie Ben Scrivens, who’s been brilliant in relief of injured Jonathan Quick.

    If only there was a way to combine the eloquence of a Sutter press conference with the calm, cool and collected tone of a Tortorella presser…

    He obviously does something right because of LA’s recent success, but he always seems to just babble and seems like he is a little lost in his own mind. He talks like my uncle, and I didn’t understand that guy for the first 16 years of my life.

    “That’s the way it is. It’s either three-and-two, two-and-[three], or two-and-two. Right?” …

    Friends … Confucius himself couldn’t have said it any better ! :)

    There’s now no question of Darryl Sutter being an absolute genius … and to think that he’s the coach of our ‘glorious’ team eh? … man, you’ve got to seriously love that! As I see it friends, the problem with most people today is that they’re positively ‘blind’ to some of the greatest things which life has to offer for free … even if it’s staring them right in the face! Oxygen, water, Elvis, food, shelter and the security of family & nation are all facets of our lives which I believe the majority of people take for granted (ie: you can throw in Darryl Sutter and the LA Kings while we’re on the subject). In fact, it’s actually a shame that it takes most people to be deprived of such wonderful ‘free’ gifts in life, before they start to truly appreciate them for what they truly meant.

    GO ELVIS !!!


    GO LA KINGS !!! … TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

        Namriverrat69 – hello friend and thanks for your greetings … I was disconnected there for a while as I had to get a new computer … but I got one man and so I’m now back in business! :) I read your recent reflection of things back in ’69 with great interest … I was only 10 years old myself then, but in growing up I’ve always empathized with you guys and the ‘raw’ deal which you were handed … you did what you were asked to do by your country and for that you must remain forever proud, as no greater honor could a man ever have …

        Happy Thanksgiving to Namriverrat69 and all PHT friends ! :) Blomfeld

      Indeed, and about as articulate as a box of rocks. But communication is so overrated.

        Do not know Sly but he sure does talk some plain truth… As for Mr Sutter i understood him to say if one watches the game (instead of playing candy crush in free seats) One realizes the highly competitive nature and does not ask daydreamer questions …He was just sayin….
        Sly while I enjoy the tune i prefer something more topical as we are(Oops the Chicago Blackgawks are… not we are i have to note that or someone will get hurt feelings) the reigning CHAMPIONS
