    Right there is a pretty good reason to reject the idea in and of itself.

    I generally find Cherry to be entertaining, but don't for a minute think he has any influence with the NHL brass on matters such as this.

    I heard Cherry was also extremely smart.




    Actually, I didn't.

    Yes, I'm certain the NHL will make all its business decsions with Don Cherry's advice being paramount.

    Exactly. Any time Don Cherry wants to undermine a cause in the future, he should just come out in support of it.

    Given all the fishing expeditions we're seeing around here lately, the trolling technique is entirely appropriate, IMHO...

    Management was fine...they had an owner who got caught with too many holdings in a bad real estate market.

    The Flames drew about as well, if not better, than Winnipeg while in Atlanta.

    Don Cherry wanted Hamilton chosen over Ottawa back in the 1993 expanion year. He made a big stink about how Buffalo screwed hamilton out of a franchise. He refused to blame Toronto, because well, it's Toronto; He can't blame toronto; toronto never does anything wrong.

    I don't see what the problem is. I mean, of course Cherry's going to support a team moving to Hamilton, anyone should be able to see that coming a mile away. And there are pro's and cons to the move, with Cherry clearly being in area where the pro's far outweigh the cons.

    It's good for Canada, great for Ontario, and incentives for the league are there. Should there be any doubt Cherry would support it?

    Cherry also said:

    The Canadian teams are making 40% of the revenues, and that by moving to Hamilton, it will be up to almost 50%.

    He reminds me more and more of Archie Bunker with each viewing.

    And strangely enough, Maclean kinda looks like Edith.

    Oh heck no. If anyone think Cherry has any pull with the League, I have a bridge to sell them. :p:

    This could've just been added to one of the other threads on the subject.

    Watch it with the "fishing" references, Timmy, or Fugu will be on you like a hawk.
