Alan Maki has this story saying the Brent has resigned in New Jersey and will be coming here. He also wonders if Danny Heatley will come too but that sounds like a pipe dream to me.
News of Sutter’s New Jersey departure created scarcely a ripple since his longing to return to Alberta had been widely known. The owner and former head coach of the WHL’s Red Deer Rebels said he was needed at home, adding he had spent the past six weeks contemplating his future.
In the end, he opted to leave with one year remaining on his contract and will require the Devils’ permission if he wishes to coach with another NHL team next season.
Not a big surprise. Does make you wonder who GM Sutter will fire if Coach Sutter doesn't get us past the first round next year?
