Grapes is my favorite Hockey commentator and I sure hope they keep him around if he wants to come back. It is refreshing to hear someone speak their mind like he does even though it is so popular to be Politically correct nowadays and you can still learn a lot about the game from Grapes.

Yeah, but there would only be one show. Burke would kill Strachan.

If you look beyond the fact that he may yell at the camera once in a while he makes some very good points about the game. Love him or hate him most of the things he says are correct. Think about what he says in his Rock Em Sock Em movies. He has some great values on the game. They never have deviated. Stuff like hitting form behind, runing up the score, not being a hot dog. Let's face it Don talks about the way the game should be played. He's cut from an old cloth and is a dying breed of what I think this country needs more of. He sticks up for Canadians and Canadian kids first. But of course that's a bad thing to do in this country. We need to focus on that kid from Slovakia that's here to take a job away from one of our kids in Junior Hockey.

But he has a great set of morals that are lost in all of this. Stuff like his appreciation for war heroes, his patriotism, not taking the Lord's name in vain, stuff like that is what he believes in. And what he says is true most of the time which angers the bleeding heart Liberals (because no one can be offended nowadays). So really I think we need a voice like his in Hockey. Someone has to come out and say it.
Well said. My feelings exactly
