Morning Line- Bruce Arthur On Don Cherry

At this point Cherry is Canadian furniture, draped in all the palettes of your grandmother’s couch. When Sportsnet took over the franchise in 2014, Cherry’s time was cut, and he was visibly frustrated and annoyed until he got a little more room to breathe. Now 85, he makes less sense than he ever has, and is less vital to the hockey conversation than he has ever been. Fair enough. He’s been on since 1981....

His voice cracked a little. He is an old man, shouting at the camera the way he always has, playing his greatest hits, growing older as everyone watches, or stops watching. The words might jumble and run into one another and, like Cole, may stop making as much sense. But everybody can still hear the music, and knows what it means.
