07:23 AM ET 06.11 | Not much for reflection, Darryl Sutter is moving on. Soon after the Kings' chartered plane pointed its nose westward from Chicago, scene of their season-ending loss to the Blackhawks on Saturday in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals, [Sutter] began getting ready to open training camp on Sept. 11. Leaving others to analyze why the team's Stanley Cup reign has ended, Sutter has turned to preparing for what the Kings might accomplish next season if their promising kids get stronger and fitter and everyone is healthy. "I started doing it on the plane ride home the other night," he said Monday. "There was no, what do you call it, decompress? No. That's not the way it was." Decompress? Sutter? Not likely.

Sutter's idea if decompressing involves taking his brother Darryl and his other brother Darryl out behind the shed for a little butt kicking

Cup win and conference finals would be savoured by anyone from the olde days...no more...kind of sad when anything but a title is considered (by some) a failure

I call it the Nike Attitude. Second place is first loser, and I really hate it.

Who's idea was it to call "Wear Purple to work Day" anyways ? That could not have helped the Players chances whatsoever.
