People tune in to Cherry no matter what. He's not doing what Madden and Milbury do, he's a Xenophobe.

Yea, Cherry just has a lot of bad opinions. That's what makes him controversial.

All you people who are outraged by this need to remember not to come in here the next time he says something you agree with (some super high praise of Crosby or some huge slam on Ovechkin) and start talking like he's some great and insightful hockey mind.

Iginla didn't do jack squat in the ECF and was a million times less noticeable than Malkin. Why didn't Cherry come out and rip Iggy for not giving it all when he had a chance to finally get a Cup ring? Oh right, he's Canada's national hero.

Lol, I'm not. I think Cherry is entertaining. He's Canada's national drunk grandpa.

Its one thing to say controversial things to get attention, but this isnt even trying. I think you're point should hold at least a percentage worth of sense before it even gets considered as an effort to get ratings/hits/attention. I mean this is akin to comming out at the end of the Finals and saying whoever wins wasnt even in the top 10 best teams in the league this year. It'll rile people up for about 3 seconds then youre like, okay grandpa I'll see ya next week.

Just wait 20 years, and he'll be comparing Geno to some other young 'punk' he doesn't like... more than likely from the grave:

I think this is more of the problem sometimes with Geno.

He goes through "rough" periods, but I usually think its misguided effort than a lack of effort. We see similar lapses from old letang

That being said, Geno looked great against Boston IMO. Completely shocking he was held pointless based on how he played, but that'll happen in 4 game sample sizes I suppose

This. Not sure why it's a shock. He'll take any hard working Canadian boy over some overpaid and soft Euro.

And Jagr is?


playing for the Cherry's Bruins so that cancels out his soff euro-ness.


Yup, Cherry would come out in support of Putin if he scored a goal for the Bruins.

Cherry's opinion on Malkin is unfair and unjustified. That's all.

People pretty much do that every time he's brought up, I don't think bias is involved here. The guy is a piece of ****.

Really? I think Geno has one of the finest hockey IQ's out there. I think tries to do too much and wears himself down.

I think anyone who makes it all the way to the NHL has a pretty adequate hockey IQ. He just gets frustrated too easily sometimes and takes dumb penalties.

How is it that hockey seems to collect so many has-been ***-holes as commentators (Cherry, Milbury, Melrose)?

Well technically, Malkin did "lose" the ECF...so that I guess makes him a "lose-r"...

But really Cherry is a fool. None of us will take him seriously but you bet there are people out there that actually think he knows what he's talking about. Unfortunate. Only losers have 21 attempted shots in a game, I guess.
