Morning Line

Whether you like Don Cherry or not, you are entitled to your own opinion about the polarizing host of Coach’s Corner.

But what has always been a bit headscratching is the reaction of some Grapes Bashers to Cherry’s penchant of honouring police and soldiers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

What’s the issue here?

You don’t like it? You have a clicker. Use it.

The topic came to mind on Saturday night when Cherry paid tribute to the three RCMP officers who were gunned down in cold blood in Moncton on Wednesday: Const. Dave Ross, 32; Const. Fabrice Georges Gevaudan, 45; Const. Douglas James Larche, 40.​

As much as we all love the sport, some things are more important than hockey. We once again we reminded of that courtesy of Coach’s Corner. At least that’s the opinion here, whether you agree or not.

-Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun.

Watch Coach's Corner from last night below.  The talk regarding the RCMP officers starts at the 4:00 minute mark.

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.

Last night, George posted Cole's call of Chicago's game winning, OT goal and below, watch the same call with a camera focused on Bob Cole...

A amazing fact about Cole I read last night, he's called 144 OT games in his NHL career as a broadcaster.

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.
