Video- Coach’s Corner Tonight

Don Cherry and Ron MacLean discussed the two early HNIC games, the Team Canada WJC loss, the Bobby Ryan/Team USA debate, including calling the embedded writer(s) a rat and a few other topics.

Worth a watch...

Everybody and his brother has talked about the Bobby Ryan situation except the person who said it, Brian Burke.

Isn’t about time Burke addresses this issue?

The reporter should release the transcripts for the entire time he was there. Was Burke the only negative ass ripper there?  I’m sure there was plenty said about a lot of players.  I’m not a Burke fan, this was said in a meeting, Burke didn’t take to twitter and single out Bobby Ryan and rip him a new one.

I don’t think I could even invent a more embarrassing reaction to Canada’s WJC loss than Don Cherry provided there.

Yeah that was pathetic…and very confusing. There’s no shame in Canada losing to a good Finnish team. The Canadian/US game is much better suited to the small ice, no surprise it’s Finland/Sweden in the final…

Before Burnside & Allen were granted full access to the meetings there absolutely must have been an arrangement beforehand. Either USA hockey had arranged to have editorial control before Burnside and Allen went to print, or they didn’t. I have yet to here anyone ask David Poile this question point blank. I doubt Burnside would have reneged on this sort of agreement, so I don’t think Poile, Burke ..et all have a leg to stand on.

Burke only reinforced my opinion of him as a blowhard bully who fancies himself to be the smartest guy in the room. He was a JA in Vancouver, he was a JA in Anaheim, he was a JA in Toronto, and he’s still a JA in Calgary. The fact that he was quoted while in the process of being a dick to someone he in fact drafted just puts it all out there for everyone to see. The fact that Burke has hidden from the media since this story broke just shows what an ass he is truly is. ( In my opinion)
