Don Cherry and Ron MacLean discussed numerous topics including the smaller players in the NHL.
from the Toronto Star,
On Coach’s Corner on Sunday night, Cherry showed clips of Gallagher and Chicago’s Patrick Kane (5-foot-9) scrambling in tight quarters before burying the puck in the net.
“I’m going to tell you why there won’t be guys like that in the National Hockey League I would say in five to 10 years and that’s a sad thing for me to say,” Cherry said.
“Watch these little guys . . . see how they twist and turn . . . see how they roll off, see that there . . . and they don’t get hurt?”
Pointing to Arthur’s article, Cherry sadly predicted that players like Gallagher (5-foot-9) or teammate Daniel Briere (also 5-9) won’t be play in the NHL because young players growing up in Canada won’t learn how to get out of a boycheck.
