Last time I checked, Don Cherry has men-love for the Leafs' boys. Wonder how Leafs nation would react if Hockey Night in Canada (yes, Montreal is still part of Canada) sported a Leafs basher as their poster boy for hockey. Oh wait. Leafs don't have bashers, they've sucked since '67

Yeah, Cherry was primed, especially after the OT!

Interesting analogy ... Bruins must be smelling a lot of napalm in the morning for the last few decades.

I loved it. I enjoy seeing somebody on the air saying what he thinks/feels. My feelings are not hurt. Plus it's enjoyable for the Habs to stick it to him.

If you hate cherry so much why watch his segments?

Are you really that obsessed with him?

Agreed.

He shouldnt suck habs **** just because he works at the CBC. I dont know why people here cant handle it when people arent stroking their ego. It's like the end of the world. I get bored with the RDS pro hab skit. It's great but once in a while I like to hear someone tear us appart.

you couldn't be more wrong...he gets paid for his opinions...period...no matter who he likes or does'nt like!...get it through your heads...he could rip the leafs every week, if that what he feels!...that's why he has the forum to do so! - if you don't like him don't watch, but quit saying he should'nt say this or that cuz he works for cbc...makes no difference...they pay for his thoughts...and he has more hockey knowledge than any of you armchair experts!

Toronto assumes this guy knows hockey. I spent a half hour last Sunday explaining to my Leafs fan brother in law that Kovy wasn't in a contract year. Cherry's fault.

i'm sorry but i just don't see what was so inflammatory about the segment. if anything cherry just pointed out how terrible the bruins were playing vs. how the habs were getting it right. was it the implied kovalev ethnic diving profiling from thirteen years back? i'm an american who only gets to watch the segments online so i'm not well versed in the nuance of cherry.

Oh yeah, says who? He was a career minor leaguer as a player and never won the cup as a coach, sorry but he's nothing but a blowhard.

This is the great Don Cherry, the all knowing hockey god ...

But man... even if he aint "suckin habs **** just because he works at the CBC"... couldnt he at least recognise that we have a good team in MTL and not make it seem like everytime we win its because of luck or the Refs?

Wow, that's just being naive. That washed up buffoon shouldn't be let anywhere near a Habs broadcast. I remember him struggling to come up with a non-negative comment the night the Habs won in '93. Best he could come up with was the team was Canadian-only. Allowed him to say something without really praising the Habs. He appeals to a base sector of Canadians that eat up his *****.

Oh, and regarding his hockey knowledge, when was the last time he used it to break down a play in a reasonable manner, or otherwise impart some hockey knowledge? CBC embarasses itself by employing him.

He only says that because it's against Boston. The guy coached Boston and hated Montreal.

That part was alright, I was more iffed about what he had to say after the game. Something about the B's getting jobbed and robbed and how the refs were biased and helping MTL and BS like that. Gawd, he sounded like your typical fanboy... why are we paying him again? Analyst? What? Where?

Not to mention that segment last week (or 2 weeks ago?) about Kovalev being a wuss like all europeans (lol, nice one) and playing for his contract cuz it was his contract year. Oh. Wait. It's not. Woops. Kovalev's signed for the next 2 season

He's a self-aggrandizing attention ***** who appeals to the dumbest portion of the Canadian fan base. He's a terrible hockey analyst and wastes the viewers' time with his pet causes. Why he's doing Habs games at all is a mystery, since 95% of the people tuning into Habs games on CBC are Habs fans and don't want to hear his idiotic rants.

Hrudy is a thousand times better, as well as being an all-around nice guy, which Cherry isn't.

The reason so many people are a little ticked off is because you'd expect a little habs bias watching a Montreal/Boston playoff game on a Canadian network, not the other way around. I got the feeling that some of the guys on the show wanted Montreal to lose the game. It was just odd and really hard to explain. If it was a Leaf game all you'd be hearing about is Leafs this, Leafs that...

That would be hard to do when he always has Toronto's in his mouth. I can't fathom how long he would last if he acted this way towards the Leafs.
