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