Come on now.
You can be a moron and still have tons of experience in something. What accolades does he even have in the hockey community? He's more well known for his retarded suit jackets than for ever displaying some sort of acute hockey knowledge. I'm not even going into the over-the-top nationalism and xenophobia he displays. Just covering the area of hockey, he's never done or said anything that would necessarily garner my respect. Perhaps he doesn't deserve over the top disrespect. To be honest, I feel he's better off ignored.

As for posters on HF, it's not like there's some majority of hockey savants here, and no one is claiming otherwise, but I'll take opinions on players from posters such as Whitesnake, Habsprospects, Grant Mccagg, Habsfan18, Crimson Skorpion, Hototogisu, Buddahsmoka, Andy, WeThreeKings, That, BoucherScouting, or TalksWithGoalposts over those of Don Cherry any day of the week. And there are a few in there I disagree with on many points, but their checklist for what makes a good player goes beyond:

1) keeps head up
2) goes into corners
3) southern ontario



edit: and I probably forgot a few great posters. I'm still hopped up on sleeping pills.
