Don Cherry takes some shots at Ovechkin

Talks **** about ovechkin and his celebrations during coaches corner and then hates on him saying he should and will get run for being too happy about scoring. He compares them to soccer players.

Someone post a vid if you can.

Anyways, I think he is an idiot and as he is aging he is becoming more and more senile.

Ovechkin is the future of the game

Cherry: "Ovechkin is a goof, is dirty, un-Canadian, will get taken out"

Coaches Corner:

Cherry:

Crosby is right, Ovechkin is turning hockey into over the top soccer celebrations. Ovechkin gets a free ride and makes lots of dirty runs, soon some Dman will take him out and he will deserve. Kids, do not celebrate like Ovechkin.... be like Sakic and Thornton.

Apparently Ovechkin is a goofy kid and performs garbage celebrations. As a Canadian boy, I don't agree Don.

God forbid players for expressing emotion and creativity; no they must be zombies and "professional"

Wow that was fast. He JUST said that.

Either way that was one of the most ridiculous segments by Cherry I've ever seen. Made me embarassed to be a Canadian to hear him say that stuff.

Don Cherry *hearts* Sidney

Coaches corner really is embarassing.

so now we should believe that Ovechkin's goal celebrations = Sean Avery's antics?

He adds some personality to the game. I love Cherry, but he's a neaderthal at times.

Ovechkin's celebrations seem more like real emotion to me rather than planned showboating. Thus I don't mind them.

Don Cherry is a ****ing racist and an idiot. If you're not canadian, you'll get bashed. You the hell cares if you are celebrating a goal.

It is because of people like Don Cherry that young Canadians like Sid the Kid turn into joyless automatons on the ice, while players like Ovechkin and Ilya let their love of the game shine through...even if it might hurt the other teams feelings.

Cherry needs to get is mind straight, i am finding myself alot now questioning his hockey knowledge, on his videos, he pronounces names wrong a ton, and he makes stupid comments that alot of the time dont make sense.

Wow. I've managed to avoid watching Cherry. So that was really appalling to see. "Don't want your Canadian kids being like these black soccer players. No way no how." How is that racist **** allowed to be on TV? Shame on Canada.

I love the way Ovechkin plays hockey, he's one of my favorite players in the league. But the celebrations are ridiculous and add nothing in my opinion. But that type of thing sells well in the NFL and NBA, so the NHL has to love the fact their young star acts like he does.

It's not just tonight, he makes ridiculous comments almost every night. I have a hard time listening to Don Cherry.

This moron basically put on a video of some African soccer national team (from the U20 WC in Canada I think) and called their celebration goofy.

I hope he's gone after this season. Embarrassment to the league, to the game, and to the country. Racist bigot who keeps glorifying war and shooting you down if you don't look exactly like him.

Any way we can get to the CBC and get this moron fired?

yup, Cherry seems to live in his own world

does he dislike all the european players ?

All the time he's like, look at Byron Bitz, good saskatchewan kid...or check out Stevie Sullivan from Timmins, ontario 'atta boy

it's a good thing i only watch him like 1-2 times in a month when on HIC, i'd go crazy just listening to him (and yes, i am european)
I'm not offended, but isn't he just a little too patriotic -

what does canadians think of this guy ? ?

Cherry is the Ann Coulter of the NHL. The guy is just so ignorant.
