`Homecoming’ not a big deal to Sutter

Of course, a major storyline for tomorrow’s game will be Darryl Sutter’s return to Calgary, where he spent eight years as coach and then general manager, and his head-to-head meeting with brother Brent, who is the Flames’ coach. Sutter isn’t exactly nostalgic about his return to Calgary, although he was helpful when I talked to him early in the week. Asked, today, about the “homecoming,’’ Sutter shrugged.

SUTTER: “It’s good to go to Canada, and bottom line, we’re playing against a team that’s really close to us in the standings. It’s like (the Dallas game). I don’t know what the hell the difference is. Every coach that has coached a long time has usually been in three or four different places. I coached in San Jose, Chicago and Calgary. I’ve been lucky, in the past two weeks, to be in all those places. [laughs] That’s the way I look at it. You guys make way too much of it. It’s like if you interviewed every player in the room that played somewhere before.’’
