Don Cherry disapproves of Hurricanes’ celebrations: ‘These guys are jerks’

first_imgThe beef is ironic considering Cherry is known for his colorful attire yet would prefer to stifle one of the NHL’s youngest teams and their attempt to be unique.The Hurricanes (31-22-6) extended their win streak to three games with a shutout victory over the Stars on Saturday, solidifying their slot in the second wild card spot in the Eastern Conference. Carolina is now 8-2-0 in its last 10 games.To much of Cherry’s dismay, the celebrations likely are just beginning. “These guys to me are jerks,” Cherry said. “And I’ll tell you one thing, they better not do this in the playoffs. This is a joke.”Cherry couldn’t help but call out the Viking Claps and Jose Bautista bat flips that have become quite popular with the organization in recent weeks.”Young men expressing themselves for joy of winning,” Cherry said. “You don’t do this thing in the National Hockey League. This is professional hockey. Are these guys jerks or something?”If you want to do it, do it before, but that is absolutely ridiculous.”Don Cherry absolutely rips the Carolina Hurricanes for their post-game celebrations 😬— Gino Hard (@Ginohard_) February 17, 2019But the Hurricanes don’t seem to care what Cherry — or anyone, for that matter — thinks.Our players love itOur fans love itNothing else matters— Carolina Hurricanes (@NHLCanes) February 16, 2019Wait, was he talking about us? 🤔— Carolina Hurricanes (@NHLCanes) February 17, 2019The team also revised their Twitter bio, which hilariously now reads, “That bunch of jerks with the fun celebrations.” Don Cherry doesn’t approve of Carolina’s post-game win celebrations.While speaking on the “Coach’s Corner” segment during “Hockey Night in Canada” on Saturday, the commentator and former Bruins coach ripped the Hurricanes for the way they carried themselves after defeating the Oilers on Friday.last_img read more
