It's pretty transparent...so why fret?


I understand it's his schtick and it's fine but I really do think that he's crossing a line with words like dog and loser. It's really not entertaining to take it to that level. I think this guy absolutely deserves a punch in the mouth.

Would he ever say some of this crap to anybody's face?

There are protected special interest groups; pittsburgh penguins and russians are not on the list. ;)

Does Don Cherry ever broaden his horizens to the NBA, NFL, College football?

I really thought this was going to be, "he's a loser because he could have gotten more $ and captained his own team somewhere else."

So I take it Malkin isn't an Irish-Canadian, from Kingston, Ontario?

I remember watching Coach's Corner, (or it may have been postgame) the Sat after one of Ovechkin's suspensions, and I was thinking "well, at least Cherry will be bashing Ovechkin, and won't bring up Malkin in this one".

WRONG

After bashing Ovechkin for a while, he went after Malkin for something.

I still watch Coach's corner, because he's entertaining, and I like MacLean. Cherry also mixes in some real good hockey knowledge and some great old-time stories, which I enjoy, but I have to wade through the hatred of Europeans, Americans, French Canadians etc to get to the good stuff.

Honestly how stupid is this observation? Geno is anything but lazy. He may be guilty of being over-zealous. But I've easily watched 99% of Geno's games as a Penguin and there's no way you can say he dogs anything. Does he get too focused on offense and make bone-headed plays? Yes. Reckless? At times. Is he lazy? No.

The best part is when Cherry takes credit for Crosby cutting the whining out of his game. Every time he mentions him he talks about how Crosby was smart to listen to him and changed his game based on Cherry's criticism. I like Cherry because I take him for what he is. He actually makes a lot of great points to go along with his hyperbole. Milbury makes only obvious points and speaks in hyperbole/fake outrage.

Has it finally happened? Have we finally lost the last "he's forgotten more about the game than you'll ever know" person?

damn I hate when I agree with Cherry!

The other was Matt Cooke, and while Cherry is the first to admit that he’s had issues with Cooke’s dirty play in the past, he liked what he saw out of the winger in the Pens’ losing effort.

“This guy was your best player,” Cherry said. “If everybody on Pittsburgh had played like Cooke, then they wouldn’t have gone out in four straight, because he was magnificent standing up to the Bruins. I’d have him on my team. I’d settle him down a little bit, [but] he’s an effective player and I think they’d make a big mistake not signing him.”


not sure I 100% agree with re-signing Cookie but he was definitely the best skater in the ECF for the Pens.

I'm sure Cherry hates this "0 head shots/game average" Cooke.

I agree with him about Cooke. I also agree with him that Letang brought physicality, unfortunately he didn't bring much else.

I'm also not sure that Malkin can skate through the other team whenever he wants. While obviously an exaggeration, it's quite ridiculous.

In fact, it's a problem that Malkin so often tries to skate through the defense by himself.

Yeah, anyone who "protected their stars from Chara" in any fashion would have been called for roughing or worse, at best a 4 on 4 situation or at worst shorthanded. That's how it goes...initial roughing gets ignored, and retaliatory penalty gets called...almost every time. Maybe it worked back in the 70s, but not any longer.
