Cherry vs Dubas



It's no secret that Don Cherry isn't a fan of Kyle Dubas. Over the years, the controversial analyst didn't hold back when he was commenting on the former Leafs' GM decisions.

Now that Dubas has moved on to Pittsburgh, Cherry, on the Don Cherry's Grapevine Podcast, heavily criticized his hiring as President of Hockey Operations.

"He's failing and yet he climbs up to the top..." - Cherry




Cherry doesn't understand how Dubas made it up there. Take a look at what he said:

"He wanted to kind of take Shanahan out of the decision making process... he wanted to have more autonomy to make the decisions. So he goes to Pittsburgh and he's not GM, he's the head of hockey operations."

"He just keeps going up, like he's failing and yet he climbs up to the top... I just don't get it, how does a guy like that keep getting higher and higher into the chain of command?"

"He took over the Sault St. Marie in 2011-12 and that's kinda tough because they didn't have a good team but he was out of the playoffs, then the next year he was out of the first round, and then the next year he was out in the second round, and then he made assistant GM with the Leafs... GM of the Leafs out in the first round, out in the first round, out in the first round, out in the first round, out in the second, and now he's the head of hockey operations, what did he do to get to that point..."

He has a good point, but it seems like he chooses to not look at Dubas' good moves. It's like he's blinded by hatred.
