In response to pucman's comment:
Melrose this morning said " He,ll take Bostons defense to win the cup"
I could be incorrect however, I thought he said "It will take" not "He'll take". In any event, while I was watching the NHL network they talked to him on the telephone and although he did not make any hard predictions, he certainly leaned towards the Hawks. If I remember correctly, during the regular season, he was in love with the Hawks and the Pens, nothing ever mentioned about the Bruins...
I have yet to figure out why the NHL or anybody pays this guy to hear is hockey "expertise...". Excuse me but I don't recall him every being anything special. Give me Don Cherry any day, anytime, he's the cat's meow...
Don Cherry isn't a hockey expert, he's an entertainer. When the Bruins were up 2-0 vs the Pens, he said that the Leafs would be in that position if they could've held on in game seven. I couldn't believe that he said that. He reminded me of some habs fans I know who think they would've won the Cup in '11 if Horton wouldn't have scored the OT winner in game seven.
GNB, I couldn't agree with you more. I happen to agree with some of what Cherry says now and then but for the most part I just shake my head. Thinking the he Leafs would've handled the Pens just because they barely lost to Boston is just flawed logic. It's mostly about match ups and which coach is able to draw up the game plan to exploit the weaknesses of the opposition. The Habs fans must have really felt awful when they missed the playoffs the following year. You know, after being so close to winning the Cup and all.
