Sutter was expected, I thought they would just keep Dean as President of Hockey Ops, so that's a little bit of a shock.
Its obvious that Deans vision of a perfect team doesn't work anymore (Kings or last Team USA) and he failed to adapt to the new NHL.
I think Sutter had to go as well, its time to give the kids more expanded roles and he is pretty resistant to do that and make them earn it instead of being patient. He also extremely frustrating when it comes to keeping lines together, he gives no one time to gel and is extremely quick to line juggle which makes it pretty hard for guys to develop chemistry. Kempe for example should of been glued to Kopitars side for a few games, instead he makes 1 mistake and is dropped to the 3rd line.
Hopefully now we can get Kopitar some real line mates.
It will be an interesting summer.
