Don Cherry used a segment of "Coach's Corner" to call out Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis after he fired head coach Alain Vigneault along with assistants Rick Bowness and Newell Brown.

“Three good guys thrown under the bus,” said Cherry on CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada.

“As far as I’m concerned the general manager threw three good guys down the drain and that’s a shame. His fault all the way.”

Cherry noted that Gillis was directly to blame for the controversy surrounding the goaltending situation, as well as sticking by Daniel and Henrik Sedin, whose lack of production led to the quick exit from the playoffs.
