Don Cherry rants about foreign players in the CHL

Don Cherry ‏@CoachsCornerCBC

Just listening to the sports experts on radio and tv talking about our Canadian defeat. Saying we must give credit to the coaches and their development in foreign lands. Check out the stars on the foreign teams where the majority of them played and where they got their development and what coaches are coaching them in their development. You’ll find that it was Canadians in Junior Hockey.

I still say the Canadian Hockey League should be for Canadians either that or change the name. Some Canadian guy spends thousands on sticks, travel, equipment, pays his taxes and his kid is cut from the CHL for some kid who’s father never contributed a cent to Canada. I know alot of people don’t agree with me and I look bad saying stuff like this.But I’ve gone a long time without worrying what people say. I know we lost. I am not a gracious guy. Lets see how many guys from the tournament make the NHL. You’ll find Canada will be number one. Hey maybe I am a spoiled sport. But that’s the way I am and feel. Lots of people agree with me but when asked say the safe thing. I don’t blame them. As my mother used to say, if you don’t like my gate, don’t swing on it.
Thoughts? Personally I find Cherry to be a xenophobic dinosaur but I'm interested in hearing other opinions on his thoughts on the CHL.
