Brent Sutter says he and Iginla are just fine
For a team that’s likely to stay completely intact, but with major personnel questions and salary cap issues, the Calgary Flames sure seem to have a lot of drama surrounding them. Perhaps it’s us, the dirty and evil media that is causing most of the issues. After all, the media was pretty laughed at earlier this week for even suggesting that Darryl Sutter be fired.
One of the common themes toward the end of the season was speculation surrounding Jarome Iginla’s disappointing play. Apparently this led to some thoughts that there was a rift between Iginla and coach Brent Sutter, something the coach says is completely false. From Ian Busby of the Calgary Sun:
“It’s been kind of a laughing matter. Personally, Jarome doesn’t like the fact it keeps getting mentioned and I don’t like the fact it keeps getting mentioned because there’s no merit to it.
“That’s the truth.”
I’m certain that things were just peachy in the Flames locker room at the end of the season.
