When I was growing up in the thirties, I was a rabid hockey fan. At that time there were only six teams in the NHL and Montreal had two of them counting the Maroons.
Now, I am only a play-off fan. And I must say the Canadiens, first playing Boston and now the Flyers, are serving up some classy hockey.
Can the Habs go all the way? I would say it will depend a lot on whether Prtice can regain his goal-tending form.
There is only one problem with this picture. And his name is Don Cherry? What an over-dressed pompous chap he is. What is it that viewers find so fascinating about Cherry that the CBC keeps him on year after year? Is it for his knowledge of the game? I can’t make up my mind whether Cherry knows what he’s talking about or not.
But the fact is if you want to watch the Habs in the play-offs you also have to watch Cherry. Too bad.
Are you a hockey fan?
Are you a Don Cherry fan?
Do you think the Habs can go all the way?
