A DON CHERRY MOMENT...


From The Hockey News' Lighter Side of Hockey..

One day early in 1975-76, after years of glory with Boston, Phil Esposito was called in to meet with infamous coach Don Cherry. Cherry reluctantly told Esposito that he was being traded to another team. "OK," Esposito replied, "but if you say it's the New York Rangers, I'm going to jump out that window." Cherry's reply? "Bobby," he said, turning to an assistant, "open the window."

LMAO These guys are all over mine too dropping F-Bombs like a Terret suffering Leaf Fan. They did get lots for Espo but how could they trade such an icon. Then again they traded Orr, Thornton, etc. The Habs were once offered Perrault even up for Lafleur and feared pulling the trigger.
