Want This Team To Get Noticed?

GET DON CHERRY AS THE GM.

simple as that.

or ask don cherry to coach ONE game, for the caps, if the season is a wash, and its clear we are out of the playoff race, we should ask Don Cherry for one game, to coach the caps for a publicity stunt.

It would work great for the Caps, to get them noticed and talked about.

The Islanders let Al Albour coach a game so that he could reach the 1500 games coached mark. (They won the game.)

Could they sign Hayley Wickenheiser? That'd create headlines and she'd probably play with more grit than Schultz.

If Don Cherry was GM, he would release Semin and Ovechkin.

Why don't we just get a sumo wrestler to play goaltender for a game, or let dikembe mutombo play defense for a game. Hell, lets let a monkey coach the rest of the season.

All of those things would get just as much publicity as any of your ideas, and they are all just about as stupid.

This is one of the worst post's in the history of hfboards.

Don likes Ovechkin, but I believe he hates Crosby. He'd despise Semin though, with a vengeance

How can he like Ovechkin when he said he hates all Russians, or something like that.

But anyway, Don Cherry shouldn't ever have his commentator job, so why should we give him the GM job?

ovechkin plays a more "north american" style game than some other russians.

So Don Cherry only hates Russians who play like Russians, but he likes Russians who play like North Americans?

taking viking fury's word that cherry likes ovechkin, i went on to explain that ovechkin plays the game the the way cherry likes. thats why he might not hate ovechkin.



just like the sedins get praise for playing a n.american game sometimes.

not a confusing statement at all.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to present the new head coach and general manager of the Washington Capitals, Mayor For Life Marion Barry.



Hey, it makes about as much sense as the original post.

He's reformed over the years.

BTW, Don Cherry has more recent experience as a coach, and for all intents and purposes as GM/owner as well.

He ran, owned, and created the Mississuagua Ice Dogs in the OHL in the late 90's. They broke the record for worst ever season in his first year as owner(GM) doing worse than even the Caps record setting first year with a 4-56-8 record. Followed that beauty up with a 9-56-3 season, then took a step back and re-set the record for the worst season ever with a 3-56-9 campaign. All that after 2 #1 picks and priority selection for the expansion year prior to that as well in the OHL entry draft for god's sake, in junior hockey the cycle of basement-to-contender is 2-4 years and he managed to make the Ice Dogs worse than the worst ever (his own team) after a couple of seasons.

So after that smashing success, and after hiring and firing 5 coaches in his first 3 seasons running the org, he decided to step behind the bench himself. They were much improved ; went 11-47-10 on route to a 4th straight last place finish in the OHL and a 4 straight first round pick. At that point he finally got out of the junior hockey game and with a real GM calling the shots, a new coach - they made the playoffs for the first time.

That is the kind of resume one can proudly hope to get back behind an NHL bench or GM's chair with right nintendowii?

He did draft the no-brainer Jason Spezza with one of his first overall picks, though later Spezza quietly demanded a trade so he could play a bloody playoff game before his junior career was over and have a real coach for once.

His other brilliant theory, to get back to his nationalistic phobias - it was during this time that the CHL first began allowing import players from Europe. Don Cherry was steaming mad that the CHL, the primary development league for Canadian hockey, would allow Europeans to take up 2-3 spots on each team that otherwise would go to good Canadian lads. So...he did the logical thing, he refused to let Europeans play for the Ice Dogs, refused to draft Europeans in the import draft. Worked out well for him. The Ice-Dogs did change that policy when he stepped out from behind the bench and stopped trying to GM the team, thank god. And Oscar Osala did end up playing for them.

Cherry's group sold the team a while back, now moved to Niagra.

Anway - this thread
