As we all expected, Don Cherry had some interesting comments on Nail Yakupov's crazy celebration from Thursday. Tonight, on Coach's Corner, Cherry's message to Yaukpov was, "LA is going to remember this, they will remember this 'till the dying day, that you don't do stuff like that."
Then, while CBC played Theo Fleury's knee sliding celebration from the 1991 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Cherry said, "now watch him act like an idiot".
I personally don't understand what's the problem with the Yakupov and Fleury celebrations. There's nothing wrong with showing your emotion after scoring a big goal, even if it does mean sliding across the ice. Fleury even responded on Twitter.
