More on Sutter’s potential hiring

There have already been significant discussions between the Kings and Darryl Sutter, regarding Sutter becoming the next Kings’ coach. If the sides work out an agreement — Sutter would also have to reach a financial agreement with the Calgary Flames, in terms of the rest of his contract — Sutter could be announced as the Kings’ coach this week, although it’s unlikely that he would be behind the bench Thursday in Columbus. Sutter also helps tend to the family farm in Alberta and might need some time to get his personal affairs in order.

For his part, before today’s morning skate, Dean Lombardi only repeated what he said yesterday, that he had no timetable for the hire.
