Don Cherry: Subban's celebration 'absolutely ridiculous'

Coach's Corner commentator Don Cherry wants P.K. Subban to stop his excessive celebrations leading up to the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics next month.

Coach's Corner commentator says it pumps up opposition

Don Cherry loves the fact P.K. Subban will be headed to the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics next month. 

But there's one part of his game Cherry thinks the Montreal Canadiens blue-liner should leave at home: His excessive celebrations. 

The Coach's Corner commentator used his Saturday segment on Hockey Night in Canada to talk about why he feels Subban's antics are "absolutely ridiculous," and referenced his reaction after scoring the overtime winner against the Ottawa Senators on Thursday.

Cherry said all it does it pump up the other team, and added Subban shouldn't be doing that in Sochi. 

Watch the above video to see what else Cherry had to say. Do you agree with Cherry? Why or why not?
