Thank Goodness Don Cherry Isn’t Coaching PK Subban

On Hockey Night in Canada’s post game show last night, Don Cherry said PK Subban had it coming when Mike Comrie cut him in the face, because PK doesn’t show enough respect to the Sidney Crosby’s and Evgeny Malkin’s of the league.
Don’s always right. He’ll tell you if you ask. He’ll tell you if you don’t ask. Yes, PK should show more respect. When Crosby and others of this supreme royalty have the puck, PK should back off, bow, say excuse me, ask if he can help in any way, and let said player blow by because said player has been in the league a couple more years longer than young and brash Subban.
Yes, Don’s right. PK should change his style completely to show more respect. His career will last about a year and half and be buried so far down in the minors we’ll need a search warrant to locate him.
In the meantime, maybe Don should show more respect for PK, even though he’s about 80 years older than him. PK is going to have a major NHL playing career, something Don couldn’t have.
Cherry’s been right about a couple of players, like Sean Avery and Dan Carcillo, two guys who cross the line and show no respect. But Subban isn’t Avery or Carcillo. He’s a young stud with stardom on the horizon, and he needs to play the way he plays.
Don should know that. He knows everything, doesn’t he?
Here’s Don being the smartest man in the world, dug up by Danno. Don Cherry talks too much. His PK theory begins in the second minute
