09:57 AM ET 12.26 | Brent Sutter deserves to stick around. It's not a coaching or strategy problem plaguing the Calgary Flames. The bottom line is even when they play their best -- as they did against the Stars -- a win is no guarantee. This collection of players is not elite. If they played the way they have the last few weeks at the start of the season, they'd probably have a few more victories and be just a little closer to a playoff spot. That's about all pre-season pundits expected of them anyway. If players had quit Thursday night against a top team in the conference while facing an overwhelming hole from which they know they have to dig their way out, you'd probably hear many more cries for the coach's head rather than his brother in the GM's office. But if there's one thing they showed in Dallas, it's that they're willing to fight for each other and their coach.

Like Mickey Redmond said, it's so close, a winning streak can put you right near the top.

let him and his brother trainwreck this season, get a lottery pick, then dump them both on day 1 of the playoffs

I'll bet that Sutter breathed a sigh of relief when he saw that vote of confidence from the Sun.

I just finishes the pens and senators game. The pens did not play. period. But those referees should never be allowed to officiate another Pens or senators game ever again

You might be on to something...considering that the level of English in the spams is kind of Vikingish maybe the twins are running the spam sites themselves...keeping the family in business should hockey not pan out...as Calgary so eloquently points out this year.
