Darryl Sutter prevented his players from eating after a defeat
The recent dismissals and departures of personnel throughout the National Hockey League in recent weeks have attracted a great deal of attention.

Several NHL teams now have vacancies, which will give them plenty of work to do this summer.

However, if there’s one dismissal that has attracted the most attention, it’s that of Calgary Flames head coach Darryl Sutter.

His departure was not only eagerly awaited by Flames fans, but also by the players in the dressing room.

This dismissal brought out a ton of information and horrible stories about the tyrant that was Darryl Sutter.

We already knew he was no choirboy, but everything we learned afterwards only made his image in the field hockey world worse.

The way he treated his players and the way he spoke to them is what has come to the fore in recent days and weeks.

If you remember the Jakob Pelletier saga, well, that’s just a grain of sand compared to the rest.

It’s not for nothing that several players withdrew their requests to be traded after Sutter’s dismissal.

Players hated the environment created by the tyrant Sutter.

Anyway, if you think you’ve heard it all, well, you haven’t.

Earlier this week, The Sports Aux app featured a commentary by a former NHL player on Darryl Sutter.

To cut a long story short, this application allows former players to anonymously leave notes and comments on coaches they’ve had in the past.

Well, on Darryl Sutter’s page, you can read that he prevented his players from eating on the plane after a defeat, no less.

This is an anonymous message from Dan Carrillo, quickly identified as former NHL tough guy Dan Carcillo.

The latter served under Sutter with the Los Angeles Kings during the 2013-2014 season, and let’s just say he doesn’t have fond memories of Sutter.

Here’s his full commentary.

“Darryl was the most negative person, let alone coach, I’ve ever met in my career. He constantly belittled players in a team context and went so far as to prevent us from eating on the plane because we lost a field hockey game.” – Dan Carrillo (Dan Carcillo) on The Sports Aux about Darryl Sutter

We understand that not only was Sutter a tyrant as a coach, going so far as to prevent his players from eating after a defeat, but that he was also a negative person.

A completely horrible story.

Could you imagine Martin St-Louis constantly belittling Jordan Harris, for example?

Or would you imagine him preventing CH players from eating after a tough loss?

No, I really couldn’t.

In short, we’re sure to keep hearing stories like this about Darryl Sutter over the next few days, and the more I hear, the more I want to say good riddance.
