Read: Don Cherry on Marty St. Louis and Ryan Callahan

Marty St. LouisOn Coaches Corner on Saturday night, Don Cherry said this about Marty St. Louis being traded to the Rangers, “he is really getting ripped…you don’t understand. He has pride and that is why he is so good….he and your buddy Richards have something going good over there.” (CBC)

Chery added that he was worried about how Steven Stamkos would be impacted now that St. Louis is gone and cited how Brett Hull, while he was still good, was never the same after the Blues got rid of Adam Oates.

On Callahan, Cherry said “one guy that I have to give heck to is Callahan, Ryan Callahan an Irish guy from Rochester, NY. My buddy Sather gives you $6 million, 6 years and you score 11 goals and turn it down because of no-trade…that was a big mistake, you will never get $6 million in Tampa.

Ron MacLean then asked, “do you think Slats was keeping that going so he could eventually offer him up for St. Louis?”

Cherry then said, “no…let me tell you about Glen Sather. He played the same as Callahan, gritty little guy…Callahan was a captain in New York. He had the world as an oyster and he blew it, listen you are Irish and need to do what you need to do but I thought it was a big mistake.” (CBC)

Cherry got it right. He went from the Captain of New York, a storied franchise, to just another guy in Tampa. Just as Messier was beloved, he went and pissed it away for three years in Vancouver.

What the frig does being Irish have to do with anything? I swear Cherry had to be the biggest moron on the planet. Can't stand that tool.

Lol "listen you're Irish and you gotta do what you gotta do" what the hell does that mean?


Anyway, methinks Sather wouldn't give Cally the no trade because he planned on trading Cally after he signed to Tampa Bay for MSL.

Cherry then finished with, "Did I mention he is Irish?"

Love Cally and miss him but Don Cherry read my mind "Callahan was the Capt of NY. He had the world as an Oyster and he blew it".........He did indeed Don Cherry.
