    Does anyone really care what Don Cherry has to say?

    I was going to post something about this, but was too busy this afternoon.

    Knowing Kadri, Cherry did a HUGE favour to Randy Carlyle. He's probably going to have a good run of games now, and we need him to do this with our eenter situation.

    One thing I always liked about Nazem is he responds well to criticism. I give him cred for being man enough to do so.

    Probably Nazem does. Cherry has been pumping his tires before he made the club.

    I agree with Cherry. He still got some maturing to do.

    One thing Kadri needs to do beyond "smartening up", he needs to work on his skating and get back to the level it was when he got drafted. His skating has honestly regressed.

    he needs to book some sessions with Barb.
     
  13. His suits tend to be louder than him, which says a lot.

    Agree with Cherry. Kadri will smarten up from that hit. Hope he remains a pest but the last thing we need is Kaleta like antics on this team. And before you all rip me apart understand I am not calling Kadri "Kaleta" I am just saying it was a similar event and I would prefer he not play that type of game and I fully suspect he will smarten up.

    If you go hard to the net things like that will happen. Good to see he's not just a perimeter player.

    Obviously, Kadri needs to smarten up. And one hopes that he immediately realized it on his own. If he didn't, one would assume that Randy pointed it out to him. If, however, he needed Cherry telling him, then perhaps Kadri is too much of an idiot to have on this team.

    I will never understand why people put much weight in what Don Cherry has to say. He was an OK coach in the 70s, but he hasn't been wanted as an NHL coach for over 30 years. When no one wanted him as a coach, he got a chance to do the HNIC thing. But even that wasn't going well until he started to act like an idiot. At best, he's a clown. At worse, he's an ignorant, xenophobic, loud mouth who shouldn't be polluting the nation's airwaves.

    Because, like every single human being in the world, hockey players listen to criticism from people who they respect. And, hockey players, especially Canadian hockey players, respect Cherry.

    I would bet that it would be "unanimous minus one" that more Canadians will listen to coaches corner than read any of the posts you make during the time it is on.
