Grading Darryl Sutter's Performance with Los Angeles Kings in 2013-14

Darryl Sutter and the Los Angeles Kings are coming off back-to-back trips to the Western Conference Finals. So while a 9-6-0 start to the 2013-14 season isn't terrible, it doesn't meet expectations either. 

The Kings sit fifth in the Pacific Division and ninth in the tough Western Conference. There are a number of areas where improvement is needed, and for the first time this season, Sutter must make adjustments because of an injury to a star player. 

Sutter remains one of the NHL's best coaches as his no-nonsense, defense-first style seems to fit perfectly with the Kings' roster. 

With that said, here is a closer look at the offense, defense and goaltending, as well as Sutter's grade through 15 games.
