Don Cherry has been known for two things throughout his broadcasting career: his crazy suits and his opinionated commentary during the “Coaches Corner” segment, where he discusses multiple hot topics from around the NHL during “Hockey Night in Canada” every Saturday.
This week, Cherry touched on the 20-game suspension given out to Washington Capitals‘ forward Tom Wilson by the NHL. Wilson was given a match penalty for a hit laid on St. Louis Blues forward Oskar Sundqvist during last Sunday’s preseason finale and was offered an in-person hearing by the Department of Player Safety.
“Never get in those trolly tracks and you know you did it like this. You talked to a lot of guys. Always see who’s on the ice all the time. That kid (Sundqvist) should’ve known that Wilson was looking for trouble.,” Cherry said.
Cherry also touched on Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand’s incident with Capitals center Lars Eller during the segment. Marchand pulled Eller into a fight he refused to engage in after he thought that Eller celebrated too much in front of the Bruins’ bench on a goal that made the score 7-0. Cherry said that thinks that Marchand was “justified” to fight Eller. He also added that he loved Marchand.

Apparently the league loves Marchand as well .
Another golden child in black and gold
Don Cherry.. that guy has lost his mind. He dresses up like a Xmas tree and promotes dirtbags across the NHL unless its Tom Wilson. What a sh**head
He’s drunk all the time too, right? I don’t know how he gets away with THAT.
Amen, bro!! Couldnt have said it better! Cherry is senile. Get him off of TV. He is ruining sports coverage.
Don Cherry’s an ass
Cherry is an an ass and turning senile besides. Marchand is a hoodlum and Cherry supports his tactics. Wilson is just big and strong, well-loved, nice in person, and Cherry has no clue about the guy.
wow what a shitbird. one minute he’s chiding Wilson for an open ice hit, the next he’s saying Paul Kariya’s hit was his fault. you can’t have it both ways, douchebag.
also, Marchand is a sack of garbage, I don’t care how nice he is in person. the dude plays dirty and gets away with it.
Don Cherry , apparently making his career on calling it as it is. Well I call BULLSHIT AHOLE on not calling it as it is , in the face of your beloved gutless bruins dishing out dirty hockey and not being called. Jake DeBrusk should be thrown out , but oh no not a chance. You shit head Cherry, to bad Kadri didn’t take him out but good. And this Veteran privilege shit, for that F*) k’n none-skater lunk head Chara; what the ____ is that about. A penalty is a penalty even if the goof is wearing Black and Gold , Mr. Christmas Tree shirt.
And I would kick Marchand’s Ass , and oh!! to have been in the position Comerov was in as Marchand was kissing him, I’d have broken his jaw.
