Darryl - A lot of great things have been written about Darryl Sutter's history with the team and the need for change. Hayley at M&G went ahead and collected a bunch of the dicussion on this into one big post while I was starting this piece. Obviously I should have brought my tinfoil hat in to work this morning. Even still, its worth reading Kent's analysis at Flames Nation and George Johnson's piece at the Herald to see what's happened to the team under his leadership. I looked around a bit for a piece defending Darryl's time with the team and came up empty. No doubt a denier or apologist will appear, so feel free to throw the link in the comments where we can all actively ignore their conclusions. Let me know what you think, I mean really, even Tiger got himself a 16th chance.
Brent - I don't know about you guys, but I'm not hearing a lot of calls for Brent's head (although a few people have suggested pinning his ears back a little, have you SEEN those things?). Even though his brother is the boss (and his other brothers are the scouts and his nephew gets ice time on our team), he's only had one year with the team and has a pretty decent coaching resume. Sometimes I disagree with what he's doing, but then I've never been to the cup on NHL10 in All Star mode. Heck I don't know, you guys figure it out.
And in case you've lost count, I'll keep up WI's program:
