    Everyone has a right to their opinion. Sure. No one has a right to a million-dollar salary and a privileged platform on a prestige national broadcast. With that platform comes responsibility. And that includes not using that platform to spew hateful opinions targeting vulnerable groups of fellow citizens.

    "I believe others can treat you improperly without any repercussions, and if you voice your displeasure you're problematic." "I don't need to actually consider a side of the story that challenges my preconceived notions." "Life is good when I don't need compassion for other people's strife." "I judge groups that challenge me by their worst persons because it's easy and makes me feel better for not growing." "Taking in information from many sources is a "bubble," ignoring others is what makes you truly free." "Don't shine a light on ignorance and hate, and don't fight for what you believe in. Just ignore it and hope it will eventually go away while they get the spotlight." and finally: "You being fed up with my uncaring attitude is the only thing I'll latch on to from this experience so I can continue to dismiss anyone who dares to question my world view." - a dramatic reenactment by We, the Privileged Many

    No, your refusal to consider others' viewpoints is a symptom of your privilege. You've never had to and there's no reason for you to start now. On the other hand, some people have no choice but to deal with racism and xenophobia in their day to day lives. So hypothetically, there is nothing that a TV personality could ever say that would offend you or make you think they should be de-platformed? What Cherry said wasn't offensive to you, but it was to many others.

    Lol, avoiding the actual points I made and playing the victim. The right would be proud of your aversion to substance. If you don't want to be called an ignorant curmudgeon, don't act like one.

    Lol so it's the people uncomfortable with racism and xenophobia who have the problem, not the people who are racist and xenophobic? Just because you live in a bubble and don't have these sorts of problems to deal with doesn't mean they don't exist for other people. You just sound like an ignorant old curmudgeon who is annoyed that he had to consider someone else's viewpoint for 15 seconds.

    Trudeau apologized, showed regret, and promised he'd learned since then and will continue to learn. His actions have backed up those words. Cherry refused to apologize, didn't acknowledge the problem, and is loudly steadfast about his unwillingness to learn or grow. Proudly ignorant of his own damage, or worse: just plain proud of his own damage. If Trudeau's response to being called out for black and brown face pics was, "Nothing wrong with it, happy I did it, everyone is overreacting" then he wouldn't have a job now either. The people who are equating the Trudeau and Cherry situations while not recognizing that regret and intent to improve are important aspects of being forgiven... man, I dunno... get help. If Cherry had showed up with Ron on Hometown Hockey and said, "I'm sorry for what I said, I shouldn't have singled out anyone. I believe all Canadians should show more support for our veterans, which is a cause that is very near to my heart, and I'll be better at wording that from now on" then this would have died by Saturday, and those of us who dislike Cherry on the airwaves would have to go back to the other hundreds of reasons why he should have been fired a long time ago.

    Personally, I wouldn't give up Brook or a second rounder for Gustafsson let alone both. (Someone probably will but it better not be Montreal.) He put up points last year but hasn't done much at that end this season and he's a liability in his own end. He's not the solution to play with Weber as they will want someone that can actually defend to make that pairing the matchup one. They can't do that with Gustafsson.

    Three points for Tatar and Danault so far. Suzuki is now fully comfortable as an NHL player, and the plays he's starting to make from that comfort... *chef's kiss* And I don't know if it was getting used to a new coach or maybe even getting used to Eastern Conference play, but Chiarot doesn't even look like the same player that started the year.

    Caps goals scored by line: 1st: 26 2nd: 25 3rd: 7 4th: 6 Defencemen: 13 Habs goals scored by line: 1st: 20 2nd: 11 3rd: 11 4th: 5 Defencemen: 13 Those Washington two top lines have scored as many goals as our four lines put together. We'll need a solid game from out top two lines and some clutch saves from Price in order to win this one.

    The table would get a little long if I tried to put them both in the same one (plus I'd have to re-do the table since I didn't save Montreal's on my computer). I've done a separate one for Nashville and added it to that post.

    Don saying "you people" was meant to be "everyone" doesn't hold much water when the full sentence was, "You people who come here, who love OUR milk and honey, who love OUR way of life." Ya, no, that is definitely not "everyone." A shame the reporter kinda sucks here. Sportsnet not even asking Don to apologize pretty much proves they were done with his shtick long ago. I would have liked to have seen him get the chance. Saying "I would have apologized" is not the same as actually apologizing. You still can, Don. You don't need your show back to do the right thing.

    The irony with the mr blowhard is that yesterday he was saying he stands by his word and wouldn’t want to be be on if he can’t say what he wants. Today he said he was going to apologize on Saturday. He should have been fired two decades ago. Still remember him calling a finish coach the dog food name guy.

    If you truly believe that 'If you feel uncomfortable about what other people say, then you have the problem', then you've never had to deal with racism, or xenophobia, or anyone's bigotry infringing on your own life, and worse still, you sound close-minded towards people who have had different experiences than yours. Sure, and Sportsnet can fire him if they feel he's negatively affecting their brand.

    Social media has given an amplified voice to diverse views that wouldn't have been heard in the old media landscape. Sure, there are strong and weak points to the 'woke' culture you bemoan, just as there are strong and weak points to small town Canadian culture. Each is a type of 'bubble'. If you truly believe that 'If you feel uncomfortable about what other people say, then you have the problem', then you've never had to deal with racism, or xenophobia, or anyone's bigotry infringing on your own life, and worse still, you sound close-minded towards people who have had different experiences than yours. That's why I said you sound like an ignorant curmudgeon.

    If you feel uncomfortable about what other people say, then you have the problem. Life goes on, its ok to have a different opinion, im pretty sure i dont agree with Basu's beliefs and i could care less what his opinions are, im sure being "Woke" gives his life meaning same with trudauex and his apology tour get off your soap box, social media platforms , facebook and stop tweeting Life is pretty good outside the PC "Woke" social media culture

    The cause Cherry was/is promoting is just as relevant, if not more relevant in a positive manner. When Cherry visits the graves of the fallen soldiers it chokes him up every time. He is passionate about the cause and does not have any select target outside of those who don’t wear poppies. If one happens to be an immigrant and wears a poppy, they shouldn’t be offended because he was not talking to them. Canadians who do not wear poppies now also think of themselves in a specific manner when they realize they didn’t support the cause because they didn’t wear a poppy either. I have to say, if I were a 30 year old immigrant in a foreign South American land and a voice on television was telling me that I should wear a purple and pink pin to remember a great cause and that immigrants like myself were shameful for not doing so, my first thought would be “where can I get one because that’s next on my list” not “fire that man”.

    He actually double downed more then once to. He had a chance to "clear the air" and chose not to But to suggest that there is NOT a double standard being upheld, depending on what side of an aisle your on is just as disingenuous. And I'm not talking solely on the prospect of immigration. I'm speaking generally across all topics and ideas. Its sickening. I'm gonna stick with Cherry should of retired long ago. His firing over these comments was a very easy decision for Roger's Sportsnet. anyways this is an NHL thread... Politics should have no place in Sports.

    I am obviously the minority of 1, I like Cherry and had no problems with his comments, he also was let go for those comments, actions have consequences. I'm sure he could care less about being fired and will have another platform. The PC police and selective outrage is just too funny, You are allowed to have opinions as long as it conforms to what the libs and PC tell you, otherwise you are labeled a bigot, blah, blah, blah

    My favourite is the "free speech" argument...as though Cherry is ENTITLED to a platform on a prestige national broadcast and a million dollar salary for spewing antediluvian gibberish. 🙄 F**king alt-right twats. Fantastic news that they finally dumped that ignoramus. He had his time, but that time passed 30 years ago. I will be even more impressed if his replacement turns out to be someone who isn't already part of that hockey media mafia. If they're smart, they will not try to replace Cherry with some lesser version of an ignorant blowhard. What I'd really like to see is a segment that actually increases our understanding of the game, like Howie Meeker used to do with his video analysis. How about someone like Ken Dryden? Or you could try a rotating cast of commentators - former GMs, agents, coaches. I like that idea quite a bit, but they won't do that, I'm sure. In a few years, PK Subban should get the slot 😄

    He crossed the line there. I have a grandfather who was a Ukrainian immigrant who fought in ww1. Uncles who were immigrants from england in ww2. What's the difference? They got the you people treatment as well. Especially my grandfather. Bad form don. I will miss him though. I loved coaches corner. Guy cracked me up. I wish people would piss off with mixing politics and sports.

    The idea is that poile and wilson kept their jobs cause at least they have made the cup final and bergevin hasnt. Wilson made the final in his 12th season (13 years due to 04-05) after taking over as Sharks GM in 2003. Poile made the final in his 18th season (20 years after being hired, 1 year pre expansion draft and 1 year lockout). So yeah they both would have been fired by your 7 years and no cup final logic for bergevin.

    😅😂 The Chiarot-Weber pairing is an intriguing, Back to the Future concept. I suspect it will not be sustainable because really fast teams will feast on its mangled corpse - and also Chiarot looks like the kind of guy who will be 'exposed' by top-pairing minutes. But I really like the Petry-Mete combo, and you have to hand it to Julien - he identified that the B's killer line is not super speedy and that it could be contained by two 'heavy' d-men. The man can coach.

    Chiarot was asked post-game about the reasoning behind the new pairing. He said the idea was to put two defensemen that aren't fun to play against (Weber and Chiarot) against the Bruins' best line. I didn't get to watch much of the game so I have no opinion on if it worked, but it's definitely ballsy to put your 2 worst skating defensemen on the ice against Marchand-Bergeron-Pastrnak and thinking, "Well they'll definitely be paying the price when they cross our blueline."

    Got lucky with that offside call, and neither goalie was amazing. Can't believe Mete didn't shoot for the hattie on that breakaway, some poor schmo in the crowd would have had to marry his girlfriend as per his sign.

    So just thought I would let everyone know, Mete is leading all Habs defenceman in goals scored for the season. Who would of imagined that?

    I watch every game and I’ve missed both of Mete’s career goals. The first one I was on the drive home from work and the second one I was supposed to make it home in time but got asked last minute to stay an extra hour. I’m looking forward to the first one I see live. The last time I saw Mete score live was the preseason 3 years ago.
