Don Cherry cherishes a 4th line checker or a talented player and he filled his team with them. His 'heart and sole' players didn't do much for him at all and rather than strengthening his team with players born outside of Canada, he just let them lose and stuck to his bigoted statements and ways.

It just goes to show how little he actually knows.
I don't think the allowed 2 imports would actually improved things that much.He prefers "heart" type players and you need a combination of skill and heart to win.
