Darryl Sutter

joined a pretty exclusive club Friday: coaches who have won more than one

Stanley Cup


Only 15 have done it in the history of the


, which pre-dates the stock market crash — the 1929 stock market crash.

Sutter has two titles, tying him for 10th on the all-time list. This one was a much more wild ride than the Point A-to-Point B journey the Kings traveled in 2012. That was, in Disney ride terms, the Casey Jr. Train. This season was more like Big Thunder Mountain.

“We did it a different way in [2011-12],” Sutter said. “That’s something that I  don't think could ever happen again if you go back to that because of winning as a road team all the time.”

This title, Sutter said, “was was totally different. A lot of new players in our lineup. During the Olympics, I always thought about  this,  How are we going to beat Chicago?  How are we going to beat Chicago?”

In seven games, as it turned out.

Sutter will not catch the all-time leader … or even the No. 2 guy on the list. Scott Bowman (

Montreal Canadiens


Pittsburgh Penguins


Detroit Red Wings

) has nine Cups. Toe Blake (Montreal) has eight.

Hap Day, who won five with the

Toronto Maple Leafs

, is also likely out of reach.

That Brings us to fourth place, where Dick Irvin (Toronto Montreal), Punch Imlach (Toronto), Al Arbour (

New York Islanders

) and

Glen Sather


Edmonton Oilers

) all have four.

Sutter would likely be happy just to one-up the

Chicago Blackhawks

Joel Quenneville

, who is one of seven coaches with two Cups.
