Has turned it up a couple of notches. He is playing like a man with a purpose.

Listen to Maurice talk and he'll tell you Buff has bee lights out all year, the goals simply weren't there.

But simply based on the eye test, Buff does look like he's turned it up a notch. I was really against re-upping him when we did - for as long as we did - but I'm eating those words now. He's a huge part of what we're doing.

To me it seems like he's playing a little smarter (not taking as many risks), and now that's starting to pay off on the stat sheet.

Fortunately for us (and unfortunately for Viktor Arvidsson  Wink) he's cranked up the physical play as well.

He's being everything I knew he always could be.

He was great all year and a completely different player in these playoffs.

Whether its ragdolling 2 opponents in a scrum, flattening someone trying to check him, one handing the wraparound, or sniping a goal from Laine's office... Buff has been pretty special these playoffs. 

He's built for playoff hockey.  This is his game.  No 3 on 3 overtimes.  Battle til you win.  That's Buff.

When he's good, he's unstoppable.  Just hope they don't get him off his game...

Anyone else catch Don Cherry calling buff a dummy last night. I thought it was a pretty rude comment and very unprofessional.

I stopped watching him ten years ago.....watched him a couple times the past couple of weeks. He is a bigger joke now than he ever was.

Exactly.  Pretty much every Coaches Corner is entirely rude and unprofessional commentary from Don Cherry.  That's his schtick.

Called Laine, a 19 year old kid,  a dummy too last game. Real classy Don.

That's probably the least problematic thing Cherry does. Sometimes the players are idiots, I don't mind that he calls them out.

I just hate his incoherent rants where he can't follow his own train of thought, much less communicate to viewers what he's talking about.

I normally write him off as being senile and on TV still for nostalgic reasons, and mostly get a good chuckle from his old man-ness. However, him saying that really bugged me. There's a difference between calling out a player because they made a dirty play/hit, but Cherry was calling Laine a dummy for his play in that game. Completely uncalled for. Pick on an underperforming vet who's playing golf right now, not a 20 year old, Richard-runner up in the most exciting series in the playoffs.

I also didn't like how he doesnt even try to pronounce a players name....he just makes Rod do it all the time.....he did it with Laine last night.
