Demers’ Message To Don Cherry


Jacques Demers may want to forward the text of his most recent article to the producers of Hockey Night In Canada, not that they have a shred of influence over what Don Cherry spews when the mic is open.  But it’s worth a shot.

Holmstrom gets hit. His face is full of blood, but he gets up, gets 13 stitches, returns to the game and gets an assist on the fifth goal. That is the best thing that could ever happen to the Red Wings. If Holmstrom can pay the price and come back, that tells you a little something about the mindset of the Red Wings. It was an unbelievable mark of courage and his teammates will follow suit. Anyone who says that European players aren’t tough and will back down ought to watch Holmstrom play hockey.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
