That is so wrong and pre-conceived on hater or lack of knowledge of the game, I don't know where to start. Because you don't like physical play or fighting in the NHL doesn't mean that it's not an important factor.
If I were to ask you if you know your hockey, you'd say that you do, right? How many pro games have you played? What's your hockey experience at a level deemed worth talking about? So because you haven't played or coached that level doesn't make you less knowledgeable, right?
So why is the fact that Cherry hasn't coached in 30 years a factor again? Because his beliefs go against yours when it comes to style of play he (and I) likes?
Like I said, Cherry clowns for drooling, knuckle draggers..............
What he says is 100% predictable: rails on needing toughness, character, and makes poor Randy into a victim (nevermind his coaching was terrible).
Considering he was a lame duck coach, basically, I thought Cunneyworth did well. I would think he'll be picked up in a NY minute once the Habs let him go.
I think the Habs should at least give him the chance to go Rosetta Stone over the summer and then take it from there, before they can him.
