Video- Coach’s Corner Tonight

The segment started with Cherry pointing out teams are laughing at the Leafs.

Then the problem with nets tipping over.

The main topic discussed by Don Cherry and Ron MacLean was star players getting injured and nobody riding shotgun for them.

Of course there were other topics too, watch the segment.

Morning Line- Bob McKenzie On Herb Brooks

Eventually, many laughs and drinks later, Herb had to go his way; we had to go ours. We said our goodbyes and just as Gord (Miller), Pierre (McGuire) and I were about to depart, Herb pulled me aside, and delivered a most solemn, serious and sincere message. Herb told me I had a unique (media) platform in hockey, that I had a voice and opportunity to wield tremendous influence but that I should never forget that also comes with great responsibility. He told me I should use my voice to be progressive, to do right by the game, protect the game, celebrate the game, put the game of hockey above all else because it's such a great game but it can be so much better than it is.

Then he shook my hand, patted me on the back and walked away.

It was the last time we ever spoke. Seventeen months later, he was dead.

-Bob McKenzie on Herb Brooks.  More on Brooks from McKenzie at TSN.

Video- Coach’s Corner Tonight

The main topic of the segment tonight was super stars and fighting.  Cherry used Crosby as an example and then showed numerous clips of stars fighting. Cherry says the stars should not be fighting.

Also a nice tribute to Steve Montador and Cherry urges the Toronto fans to keep the faith.  Cherry also mentioned the play of Tyler Myers and claims he will soon be a star in the NHL.

Video- Hockey Day In Canada Feature On Danny Gallivan

via Sportsnet,

Danny Gallivan was not the first hockey broadcaster. That honour belongs to Foster Hewitt. But like Hewitt, Gallivan had paved his own path and legacy as the voice of the Montreal Canadiens in an era that spanned 16 Stanley Cups.

Video- Coach’s Corner Tonight

Well power restored at the KK home but pretty darn cold right now in the home office.

The main topic in my opinion of Coach's Corner tonight was Don Cherry saying maybe Milan Lucic is getting a raw deal on some of the penalty calls against him.

Corey Hirsch Remained Positive During Down Time

from Curtis Rush of the Toronto Star,

One day, he woke up alone. His wife was gone and his three children — Alexa, 16, Hayden, 14, and Farrah, 10 — were with her (they have shared custody).

On the outside, it looked like a perfect life. A home in Phoenix. A family. But when the marriage ended, there was a house to sell, assets to split. A new place to live.

He was losing hope. But suddenly something clicked in him, and he thought that if he changed his thinking, something good would happen.

He tried it. Days went by and, he thought, this isn’t working. But he kept at it. Positive thoughts.

Little blessings were there, but he discounted them.

“We’re always looking for the big things,” he said. “There are a ton of good things that happen. We’re healthy and (in his case) I got to watch my daughter dance.”

Through Twitter, he found a great supporter in Stacy Lymber, who is a transition and lifestyle strategist who works mostly with ex-hockey players.

“He’s inspiring,” she said on the phone from Buffalo, N.Y., “but the sadder part about it is there are thousands out there more like him, not just hockey players. They’re lost, basically.”
