Morning Line- Lance Hornby On Don Cherry

For the better part of four decades, fans didn’t head for the washroom or the fridge when Ron and Don came on. To this day in the Scotiabank Arena press box, an usher turns up the sound on a big TV with NHL media, management, scouts and caretakers all pausing to see whose feathers Cherry was going to ruffle.

Go Canadian Teams Go

from Michael Traikos of the National Post,

Nearly a quarter of the way through the NHL season, six of the seven Canadian teams are currently holding down a playoff spot, and the one that isn’t is in line for a top-three draft pick.

That’s the good news. The bad? Check back with us next week.

While things look promising today, we cannot be sure they will stay this way tomorrow — or the day after. Unlike a year ago, when Calgary, Toronto and Winnipeg were separating themselves from the pack, no one is necessarily playing like a Stanley Cup contender. On some nights, none even look like a playoff contender.

That being said, all you have to do is get in. And, right now, it looks like six teams are heading that way.

NHL Short Notes


* The Hurricanes erupted for eight goals as defenseman Dougie Hamilton, forward Andrei Svechnikov and head coach Rod Brind'Amour each contested their 100th regular-season game with the franchise.

* The Capitals overcame a 3-0 deficit in regulation, but Nick Schmaltz scored the decisive goal in the shootout to lift the Coyotes past the NHL’s first-place team.

* Several streaks are on the line as 18 teams are in action across nine games tonight.

Don Cherry On His Firing

from Joe Warmington of the Toronto Sun,

Don Cherry says he has been fired from Hockey Night in Canada by Sportsnet.

And the legendary star of Coach’s Corner says he will not walk back what he said on Saturday.

“I have just learned I’ve been fired by Sportsnet for comments made on Coach’s Corner Nov. 9,” Cherry told me in a phone interview. “No problem.”

Cherry added: “I know what I said and I meant it. Everybody in Canada should wear a poppy to honour our fallen soldiers.”

And Cherry said his words were not racial or bigoted but patriotic and respectful of our troops.

Who Answered This Question?

Have to ask you, as a veteran coach what do you think when you see some of these players today trying things like Andrei Svechnikov's lacrosse-style goal, Matthew Tkachuk's between the legs goal?

"Oh, hey, I think everybody wants to be in the highlights now. The guys now, I think they're getting a little of this jazz now. As a coach you're sitting there like, 'Shove that play up your you know what,' but now these guys are doing these plays and it's like, 'Oh my goodness, we can't be doing that stuff, right?' At the end of practice you can do anything you want, but now that they're doing it live and it works sometimes, now everybody thinks they've got to be in on it. I think the last couple of weeks have created a monster. I'm going to mind my business on this one a little bit. Haha."

Who is it and much more from the mystery man...
