Kings coach Darryl Sutter talks about what it means to have a winning season

Kings coach Darryl Sutter said Monday he believed the 2012-13 season was a success despite falling short of playing for a second straight Stanley Cup championship. Here’s more from Sutter during his season-ending session with reporters: “We thought we had a really good season. We played 18 games in the playoffs this year. There’s 28 other teams that wished they played 18 games. This has no bearing on anything other than you know you’re a really good hockey club and you know how close the league is.”

Here’s more: “You can’t win the Stanley Cup every year. I don’t like going on about this, but there are some awful spoiled people in the media and awful spoiled people in this organization. We’ve played more playoff games in the last year than any other team in hockey. I have no problem with it other than we’re a young team and we can get better. … If you look at the difference between Los Angeles and Chicago, you’d have to say Chicago was a healthy team going into this last round.”
