    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    That's a really nice piece. Thanks, Birdman.

    This guy has very high beerability. He'd be awesome to grab a drink with at the bar.

    Definitely! I've been lucky enough to do this a few times with him at Pancho's since family friends of mine own the place; he's just as hilarious as you would imagine. He's usually just sitting at the end of the bar drinking a margarita haha.

    Fantastic stuff. Just when you think you are out of things to love about this team it gets a tiny bit better.

    I think the thing about Sutter for these players is that they all know he doesn't need this job. He is here because he wants to win and leave a legacy as a coach, mentor, and friend to these guys.

    Also, to a man each of these players know that Daryl is Dean's first choice to coach this team.

    Wasn't Lombardi quoted as saying that Darryl was his "dream choice for a coach"? I thought he was quoted as saying that a month or so before he canned Terry Murray.

    Tons and tons of great coaches in sports out there.
    Darryl belongs in a group above that. Elite? Something different. He brings another component to it. He could do it at every level and be successful. And, this is the weird part, winning seems to almost be a symptom of his coaching, not the barometer.
