Bruins bruiser Milan Lucic made waves Wednesday night when he apparently threatened Canadiens forward Dale Weise in the handshake line following Montreal's series-clinching win in Boston.

"I'm going to [expletive] kill you next year," was what Lucic purportedly said to Weise, and video shows the Bruins forward saying something that appears less than friendly.

Many hockey observers have been quick to jump on Lucic for the alleged ill-mannered comment, but Coach's Corner star Don Cherry says the incident is overblown.
