Chery added that he was worried about how Steven Stamkos would be impacted now that St. Louis is gone and cited how Brett Hull, while he was still good, was never the same after the Blues got rid of Adam Oates.
On Callahan, Cherry said "one guy that I have to give heck to is Callahan, Ryan Callahan an Irish guy from Rochester, NY. My buddy Sather gives you $6 million, 6 years and you score 11 goals and turn it down because of no-trade...that was a big mistake, you will never get $6 million in Tampa.
Ron MacLean then asked, "do you think Slats was keeping that going so he could eventually offer him up for St. Louis?"
Cherry then said, "no...let me tell you about Glen Sather. He played the same as Callahan, gritty little guy...Callahan was a captain in New York. He had the world as an oyster and he blew it, listen you are Irish and need to do what you need to do but I thought it was a big mistake." (CBC)
