Don Cherry explains the valuable lesson he learned from Bobby Baun

One of those tributes comes from a legend in his own right, Don Cherry. Cherry took to Twitter to add to the tributes, but he also shared a valuable lesson Baun taught him during his rookie season in the AHL and it's one that still stands today; take a look.
The lesson: always be mindful of who is on the ice with you, because you never know what can happen.
While this lesson was way more valuable when Cherry played, especially in the AHL, it still rings true today. The moment you don't think something will happen, the moment you let your guard down is the moment the opposition will take advantage. Wether that be in a fight, with a dirty hit, or a lapse in coverage.
At some point every hockey player learns that lesson, either the easy way or the hard way.
