Don Cherry Calls Out NHL Thugs On Coaches Corner

Don CherryTotal Pro Sports – Leave it to Don Cherry to associate car theft and National Hockey League players with one another.   On CBC, about 3 weeks ago, Don Cherry (on Coaches Corner) had some harsh words for the last place Ottawa Senators and Tampa Bay Lightning.  Cherry basically told all of Canada what he thinks about how hockey players should dress while going to the rink.

That night the Ottawa Senators were facing the Tampa Bay Lightning when Mike Fisher of Senators and Andrei Meszaros of the Lightning were walking into the rink wearing tuques, untucked shirts and no ties.  This is pretty concerning considering other leagues like the NBA enforce a strict dress code, more than the NHL does.

Cheery was basically saying that their players are dressing the way their team is playing.  He compared the first plac Washington Capitals who came into their came that Saturday Night “Dessed to Impress” and the last place Senators and Lightning walked into the game dressed like they didn’t care.

If you were Mike Fisher who is now reported to be dating Carrie Underwood, actually care the way you look having a smoke show of a girlfriend like her?

Don Cherry called them thugs and they looked capable of stealing the hub caps off your car.  If this is the case, I’ll be sure to take public transportation to the rink next time I watch either of these teams play and I’m sure Don would urge you to as well.

Here is the clip from Hockey Night in Canada.
