Don Cherry, the ultimate douchbag media guy, defending Lucic, the ultimate douchebag player. Nothing unexpected here. Lucic is Canadian. If he was a Russian, Cherry would be outraged.

I’ve been silent on this up until now, but I’m glad to see there is someone out there with a little sanity. I’m not a xenophobe, but I’m with Grapes; this incident is way overblown. So somebody said something. blah blah blah So what. Gawd people grasping at straws for anything to contrive a controversey. Maybe he should be suspended and fined and banned for life. yeah yeah   Get the torches and pitchforks!  Look for warts! Does he weigh the same as a duck?
I saw somewhere someone comparing Lucic to Claude Lemieux over this incident: perfect example of how the passing time leads to a loss of perspective. So now we are to believe that verbal threats between rivals are equal to blindside boarding cross-checks. sheesh This whole thing is stupid

Well, it starts with the Bruins rep as a classless bunch of goons. Lucic spears DeKeyser. Thornton sprays water on Subban. Marchand exists. A vocal minority of their fans are racists. Then this.

Bottom line, Lucic is regarded as a world-class jerk both on and off the ice and things like this just add to that reputation. Then when he’s asked about it, he doubles down on being a jerk by adding a big dose of immaturity. I haven’t seen anyone suggest a fine, but if they do, they’re misguided of course.

So is it overblown? I don’t know. But I do know that giant assholes should be called out when they act like giant assholes.
