One of the topics Ron MacLean and Don Cherry discussed were the goal nets.
Don Cherry said the net has become too top-heavy because they took 12 inches off of the back and that someone is going to get hurt the same way Mark Howe got impaled by the goalpost back in the day.
A few other topics including a look at Tyler Toffoli of the LA Kings.

HE WENT THERE
Don Cherry said he didn't think women should not be allowed in the locker room in response to an incident from the week.
Spotted in the stands during Friday night’s Jets-Penguins tilt was this mini Don Cherry, ably played by Kelly Thornhill of Winnipeg. The adorable youngster won a Don Cherry look-a-like contest, with her prize being seats to the game and the chance to meet the Ron MacLean and Don Cherry.
