Kukla's Korner Hockey
from Steve Buffery of the Toronto Sun,
Six times during his five-minute show on Hockey Night in Canada, Coach’s Corner star Don Cherry griped about the lack of time for his segment, often with a pronounced scowl on his face. He even threw his arms up in frustration at one point.
One sports TV insider suggested that it was almost like Grapes wanted to get himself fired.
Since Rogers Sportsnet secured the rights to Hockey Night in Canada, Cherry’s segment has been cut from seven minutes to five, something Cherry was never happy about, which was obvious during his show on Saturday night. It’s likely any other broadcaster griping the way Cherry did would have been sanctioned or disciplined in some way.
If you missed Coach's Corner on Saturday, watch it below...
One of the main topics Don Cherry and Ron MacLean discussed was the play of Mark Giordano of the Calgary Flames.
There are more topics too and in my opinion, this segment needs more time!
More topics too, watch below...
No words needed tonight.
What do you think of the new look montage which played before the puck dropped last night?
One of the topics Ron MacLean and Don Cherry discussed were the goal nets.
Don Cherry said the net has become too top-heavy because they took 12 inches off of the back and that someone is going to get hurt the same way Mark Howe got impaled by the goalpost back in the day.
A few other topics including a look at Tyler Toffoli of the LA Kings.
Don Cherry and Ron MacLean in a five minute segment mostly discussed the Leafs and the lack of Canadians on their roster.
Not the type of montage we are used to, but very well done.
The first 20 seconds or so of the video shows a few clips of the game...
