Kukla's Korner Hockey
The segment started with Cherry pointing out teams are laughing at the Leafs.
Then the problem with nets tipping over.
The main topic discussed by Don Cherry and Ron MacLean was star players getting injured and nobody riding shotgun for them.
Of course there were other topics too, watch the segment.
The main topic of the segment tonight was super stars and fighting. Cherry used Crosby as an example and then showed numerous clips of stars fighting. Cherry says the stars should not be fighting.
Also a nice tribute to Steve Montador and Cherry urges the Toronto fans to keep the faith. Cherry also mentioned the play of Tyler Myers and claims he will soon be a star in the NHL.
Danny Gallivan was not the first hockey broadcaster. That honour belongs to Foster Hewitt. But like Hewitt, Gallivan had paved his own path and legacy as the voice of the Montreal Canadiens in an era that spanned 16 Stanley Cups.
Well power restored at the KK home but pretty darn cold right now in the home office.
The main topic in my opinion of Coach's Corner tonight was Don Cherry saying maybe Milan Lucic is getting a raw deal on some of the penalty calls against him.
Canadians will be in the perfect position to honour one of their favourite Valentines this Saturday, Feb. 14, as the country’s annual hockey tradition, Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada, descends on Halifax, NS to celebrate the nation’s beloved game. Coverage begins at Noon ET/9 a.m. PT and continues all day and night long with live game action on CBC, City, Sportsnet, and Rogers NHL GameCentre LIVE.

Kelly Hrudey, Elliotte Friedman and Nick Kypreos join Stroumboulopoulos in Toronto, with Don Cherry, Cassie Campbell-Pascall, Jennifer Botterill, and NHL alumni including Wendel Clark, Lanny McDonald and Guy Carbonneau joining MacLean in Halifax.
US viewers can watch most of Hockey Day in Canada on the NHL Network US starting at 12:00pm ET on Saturday.
The best part of Coach's Corner tonight was Don Cherry talking about Evander Kane which is at the end of the segment and includes this from Cherry...
“You are the fork in the road right now. You are a jerk right now and don’t think you can fool me with the operation. The operation is they didn’t want you around.”
Other topics but not all- the terrible first period of the Edmonton/Toronto game and the fourth line of the New York Islanders.
Elliotte Friedman sat down with newly-retired goalie Martin Brodeur and asked what he would change about the NHL in its current state.
Few of the topics discussed by Don Cherry and Ron MacLean were the bad goal Bernier gave up a few days ago, sticking up for a teammate and few more...
The items Don Cherry and Ron MacLean discussed- the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Winnipeg Jets, the fourth line of the New York Islanders and a few more topics.
Don Cherry and Ron MacLean topics from last night- P.K. Subban defensive play, the Canadian WJC team and other international teams, Roberto Luongo, the Edmonton Oilers, Randy Carlyle, Matt Cooke turtling yesterday and J.P. Parise.
