Breaking: Don Cherry, Rips the Leafs a new one over 2019 draft selections


Not one to hold back, Don Cherry rips into Maple Leafs management over this weekends draft selections.
On Sunday, Don Cherry took to Twitter to voice his opinions on the Leafs draft selections and in turn taking a dig at the teams overall style in general.


In the attached twitter doc, Grapes goes on to say:

Washington won the Stanley Cup two years ago with a big tough team and a big tough Canadian boy Tom Wilson, who I saw play minor midget in Toronto. He stirred the drink for the club which helped win them the Cup. St. Louis Blues won the Cup this year. A big strong tough club, with 16 Canadians, hit and hit some more. Put out Hertl, Pavelski and Karlsson in the San Jose series. Took no prisoners. MVP Canadian, saw play here in Toronto, Ryan O’Reilly tough and gritty and co-MVP as far as I’m concerned, Jordan Binnington, won the Cup for them, also saw him play minor midget, also Canadian. The best defenceman in the playoffs by far Alex Pietrangelo also a Canadian big tough kid I saw play in Toronto. Ok Lets go over it…. Tom Wilson, Ryan O’Reilly, Jordan Binnington, Alex Pietrangelo all from Ontario, 16 Canadians on Blues… a Blue print on how to win the Stanley Cup. The Maple Leafs team who needed jam and sand paper last year drafted; 1 Russian, 2 Fins and 3 Americans all described as rather on the small size 5’9 to 5’11.  The Leafs have gotten smaller and gentler… this team sits among 40000 kids who love the Leafs… it really does boggle the mind.
What say you Leafs fans? Does Don Cherry have a point here, or is this just another case of "Old man yells at cloud"
