Don Cherry should have been fired years ago; he was supposed to be a hockey analyst, not a political commentator.

Fist-fights, not skilful play, was his main interest – while bad-mouthing European players.

The one point one which I agree with him is when he said that Bobby Orr was the best player ever to lace up a pair of skates.

Pavel Bure, on the other hand, had the best comment I’ve heard about “Grapes” — “Every circus needs a clown!”
