Bob Cole Continues To Make The Calls

from Luke Fox of Sportsnet,

His voice sounds like childhood, like staying up past bedtime, like wearing out the front edge of the family couch.

And we’ll get to hear it one more time, at least.

Since the legendary Foster Hewitt passed away in 1985, hockey’s most recognizable play-by-play voice has belonged to Robert Cecil Cole, who broadcasted at least one game of the Stanley Cup Final from 1980 through 2008.

Cole will turn 81 next month. With age and accuracy heading in opposite directions, he has slipped to Hockey Night in Canada‘s second line, behind the razor-sharp Jim Hughson, 57. And now his future in the booth is in doubt.

Video- Coach’s Corner Last Night

Don Cherry and Ron MacLean discussed numerous topics including the smaller players in the NHL.

from the Toronto Star,

On Coach’s Corner on Sunday night, Cherry showed clips of Gallagher and Chicago’s Patrick Kane (5-foot-9) scrambling in tight quarters before burying the puck in the net.

“I’m going to tell you why there won’t be guys like that in the National Hockey League I would say in five to 10 years and that’s a sad thing for me to say,” Cherry said.

“Watch these little guys . . . see how they twist and turn . . . see how they roll off, see that there . . . and they don’t get hurt?”

Pointing to Arthur’s article, Cherry sadly predicted that players like Gallagher (5-foot-9) or teammate Daniel Briere (also 5-9) won’t be play in the NHL because young players growing up in Canada won’t learn how to get out of a boycheck.
