Last I counted, if you ad the number of cups from the Rangers, Bruins AND Canucks, its still only half of the Wings cups, in the last 20 years or so…

Let them fight, If they are happy selling newspapers while we parade, Im OK with that

Fuc*ing putz.

He Don, ask Kesler how soft Detroit is…he needed a change of underpants after Kronwall finished him.

But yeah, Lapierre, tough…

Don Cherry- the guy forever championing the guys with little to no hockey skills, and pissing on the guys with the most ability.

Fuc*ing putz.

Ask Lapierre if Abdelkader can’t fight…  Fighting in the playoffs is little if any, just more of Cherry’s stupid crap that he goes on and on about…..

This made absolutely no sense to me. Between the fact that the Wings have dropped gloves very, very regularly lately (and handled themselves well) and that Detroit’s playoff record is pretty damn good, recent hiccups to San Jose of late included…Insinuating that the Red Wings can’t and won’t win a Stanley Cup as long as Mike Babcock (who would prefer to have a tough guy on the roster) and Ken Holland build what Cherry is essentially insinuating is a team of Euro Cream Puffs is just silly.

I watched his rant last night and I was shocked Ron didn’t intervene. Grapes made a fool of himself.
And,went out of his way to insult, the entire Red Wing Organ-i-zation, Tick-Tock, Babcock, the Illitches and every European born player to ever play the game.

You only have to look at the #1 face of the NHL and tell me how would he survive another hit to the head, because that is what fighting is.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Fighting may have helped you win the cup in the 60’s and 70’s but today it doesn’t translate to winning anything. Cherry is an idiot and might as well have said We can win the afghan war with muskets because they were so important in the war of 1812.

Fast forward to Hockey Night in Canada during the playoffs this year and he’ll be on the bandwagon holding an octopus in the intro like a two faced moron…. just like last year.

Cherry wishes he was half the coach Babcock is.
