Maybe you should add that he said it was because he views women as better than men, and that's why he doesn't think they should be in the locker room with a pile of naked men many of whom likely have little sense of modesty. You're trying to make it sound like Don Cherry hates women, when their is no evidence of that.
As for what was said this time, Don Cherry stated that he doesn't see a lot of people wearing poppy's and then encourages/tries to guilt immigrants (<strong>people who made the conscious decision to live in Canada</strong>) to honour the people who sacrificed everything to make this country the country they now love. It obvious why he singled out immigrants, they are here because they decided to be, while some person born in Canada not wearing a poppy didn't make the decision to be here. Don Cherry simply has an abrasive personality and style of speech. People who make their living by dividing people want to attempt to force a feeling of division among people in this country over it, and it looks like they have succeeded, they managed to convince enough people that Don Cherry is a hate filled person that he's been fired. It's funny really, that the same people angered by this are the ones who voted ,or would have voted if they were Canadian, for a hypocritical blackface wearing liar in the recent election.

I don't get to watch many Wild games, so all I can go off of are the raw numbers, and they put him in the late 30 early 40's among LHD, although depending on what stats people value more he could be higher or lower. Also, I figure he will get more than a playoff teams 1st rounder, but not anywhere near what this trade is. Since MTL is the destination in this trade I will use them as an example, Brodin for the better of MTL 2020 2nd rounders (which becomes MTL 2020 1st if they make the conference finals), and a conditional 2nd in 2021 (becomes a playoff protected 2021 1st if MTL makes the playoffs in either season, conditions removed and remains a 2nd if the 2020 pick becomes a 1st), and a 2022 3rd rounder if Brodin resigns. Maybe even add a prospect not named Poehling, Primeau, Romanov, Caufield or Brook and adjust picks accordingly. If Brodin is the answer in MTL it all but guarantees them a playoff teams 1st rounder in the next two years, plus a 2nd and maybe more.

Not saying Domi will hit 70 again, just pointing out that at this point in his career he is ahead of Marchand, who is being used as a comparable in this thread.
Also, here is my breakdown of Domi being compared to William Karlsson, in reference to his drop off after a career year (its taken from a previous thread so it's a bit clunky).
More than double his career high from before his breakout. I very much doubt Domi more than doubles his previous high from before last season of 52pts but it's nice to make bold predictions.
Assuming you meant he regressed from his new career high, he was still closer to that than his old one, about 9.2% of the average of the 2, which would put Domi, assuming we are doing a direct comparison, at around the 67-68 point mark.
Personally I think he settles around the 60 point mark, maybe hits 65 a few times, possibly even pushes 70 again before the end of his career
Caufield is 1 of MTLs top prospects, the top prospect depending on who is doing the ranking, so he is untouchable in anything resembling a fair trade. Also, as I have pointed out on several other Ehlers to MTL threads, yes Ehlers would be an upgrade among left handed wingers for MTL (unless Domi shifts to wing and has a similar season to last) and he has a decent contract with decent term, but he isn't an upgrade worth paying a large cost for.
Down the middle going forward I think the hope in MTL is Kotkaniemi, Poehling, and either Suzuki or a resigned Danault to round out the top 9, the RW would likely be a resigned Gallagher, Caufield and either Suzuki if Danault stays or maybe they keep Armia, that leaves Domi and Drouin under team control moving forward at LW with Lehkonen playing 3rd line to round out the top 9. Ehlers should be an improvement on this group, but again it's not a massive improvement, so MTL's management would likely prefer to gamble on Caufield living up to his predraft hype (most mock drafts had him top 10, comparisons to DeBrincat) and Drouin finding some consistency, rather than take the PR hit of trading their most recent 1st round pick. LW just isn't what MTL needs right now, so they aren't paying fair price for a LW who is a minor improvement.
