Feud erupts in Calgary as Flames’ dressing room is “disjointed”!

On Monday night, the Calgary Flames acted like they were out of it when it comes to the playoff race in a humiliating 8-2 loss against the Los Angeles Kings.

On Tuesday, Pat Steinberg revealed on the air of TSN 960 that the dressing room has been “disjointed” with some veteran players not seeing eye to eye with head coach Darryl Sutter.

Darren Dreger had more to say about the strained relationship between Sutter and his players on last night’s Insider Trading on TSN.

“Nazem Kadri’s ice time is diminished here in the month of March. He played 12 minutes, 35 seconds in that game against the Kings, clearly he’s not in [head coach] Darryl Sutter’s good books these days. Sutter, we know, isn’t a ‘hug it out’ type of coach, he’s hard on his players, but is that hardness starting to take its toll? So is this a team that even though they’re on the cusp of a playoff spot in the Western Conference, are starting to run out of gas, fed up [with Sutter], or both?”

This isn’t the first time Sutter lands in hot water when it comes to his players and his coaching ways.

Earlier this year, Sutter was brutally called out on social media by Jonathan Huberdeau’s agent Allan Walsh, and was even met with GM Brad Treliving for how he treated rookie Jakob Pelletier in his NHL debut against the Tampa Bay Lightning as he was immensely disrespectful to the young player during the postgame press conference.

On Tuesday night, Calgary managed to get a 5-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks. But that’s a team that is out of the playoff race and didn’t really put up a fight…

The Flames need to start playing better and winning games, especially if they want a spot in the postseason. The question is, can they do it under Sutter?
