I know a lot of you don't like Cherry. But I've met him a few times and even been over to his house for a BBQ. The man is awesome and knows so much about old time hockey. Getting to sit with him while drinking a few cold ones while he told old hockey stories was something I'll never forget.
I will agree that is really cool, but as much as he knows about old time hockey he knows jack about modern hockey. If the guy knew anything really he would have had a coaching job somewhere in the last 25 years but he has been exiled to cbc for 5 minutes a week.

I would disagree with that statement. True he does come out with some things that leave you thinking What the ****? But his knowledge is quite deep, it's his way of getting his point across on tv that needs work.

Don Cherry is going to be really sad about the Leafs when they dont make the playoff and we crush the Bruins in 1st round!

Anyways, how can you take any guy seriously when he doesnt even know how to dress properly:

I think if he could relate to the modern game he would be coaching.

Absoloutely...he knows his hockey history and is an entertaining goofs on CBC but is a dinosaur when it comes to the modern era of the NHL.

No NHL team would dare to throw this guy behind the bench because he seems to be stuck in the Cold War era.

And to think that I missed the one Habs mention for March on Coach's Corner because I went to the store this evening.

His usual talking point on the Habs:

I'd appreciate that from Cherry if it wasn't for the fact he uses Koivu as his scapegoat for his xenophobia. He can also excuse Koivu's visor for the fact he got hit in the eye (and forget he wore one before the slash) and continue to yap about his heart.

My guess it's because he has the best chance to win it compared to all the other Canadian rookies. Toews played too few games. Good 'ole Canadian boy Price.

One of the very first questions I asked Cherry when I met him was "Why aren't you coaching in the NHL?"

His answer was that he only wanted to coach the Leafs. But at the time he was fired from the Colorado Rockies he was still under contract to them. He said that Ballard was too cheap to give up a draft pick or other compensation for him.

When his contract with Colorado expired he was feuding with Ballard and they couldn't come to an agreement. He was working for CBC and making good money, while getting to spend a lot of time with his wife and family.

He also told me that over the years he has received a few offers to come back and coach, but that they came before his wife passed away 11 years ago. After that he had other business ventures that took up a great deal of his time.

Personally I don't think he would make a good coach in the new NHL. But I think he would make an excellent consultant for any team.

It would be nice if he won, but he would have to lead Montreal to a cup basically to win it.

Price is not a really good #1 goalie at this point of his career. He gives too many rebounds in my humble opinion.

Edit : I forgot to had that he'll be awesome soon enough...

He is too old to coach but he is one heckofova an entertainer. He takes a postion that has a grain of truth and takes it to the extreme.

Why would he take such a huge pay cut, and want to answer to someone on a daily basis? Why would he want to travel so much?

Coah's Corner is a job that nobody would leave, to coach in the NHL.
Taking a coaching job would be taking 10 steps back for Don Cherry.

He knows hockey, knows the game inside and out. It is sometimes hard to tell because of his love for the Leafs, but he understands the game very well.

if by new you mean since its inception, then yes.

The voting is conducted by members of the Professional Hockey Writers Association at the conclusion of each regular season to determine the winner.
