With another disappointing season in the books, the Calgary Flames have come to an agreement with their current coaching staff.  The much needed shake up is starting in Calgary this summer.

Brent Sutter has been behind the Flames bench since 2009 where he has gone 118-90-38 and has never missed a game.  In that time, the Flames did not make the playoff once and averaged 91 points a season.  Prior to his stint in Calgary, Sutter coached the NJ Devils and Red Deer Rebels.

According to the Flames, his assistant coach Dave Lowry will not have a contract renewal as well.

What’s in store for the Flames this summer?  Coach hunting and big time line up changes will mean a very different team iced next season.

Go Flames Go!
