Don Cherry speaking the truth on the Crosby hit and how the NHL needs to change
With the terrible hit on Crosby, Don Cherry says some changes needs to be done with the instigator rule to stop brutal cheap shots
I love Don Cherry. I’ve had the opportunity to spend a little bit of time in Canada and this guy is the Charles Barkley up north. He is a knowledgeable hockey guy who wears the coolest suits in all the land. What he is saying can’t be any more accurate in my opinion. I don’t know how there were no suspensions handed out even after we have Crosby out for game four. With Crosby’s prior concussion problems who knows if he ever makes it back?
What kind of a message does it send for the rest of hockey? Now I’m a competitor so you can just gun for the other teams best player and take him out with no repercussions. For people saying that fighting has no place in hockey, right here is my response to that. We need to bring back enforcers in a big way. If there isn’t a huge fight tonight than I have lost all faith in what is hockey. I’m not sure why there wasn’t a big fight in their last game but there has to be one tonight. I’m happy that we have a voice in Done Cherry still out there to speak the truth.
