There's no holding him back.
     Known for his opinions--and unabashed expression of them--Don Cherry has been causing debate for decades. Topics on "Coach's Corner" sometimes veer away from sports and on to other matters that are near and dear to Cherry's heart: the war in Afghanistan and politics, among many others.
     In Straight Up and Personal, Cherry shares his thoughts on a broader range of issues than he ever has before. He shares some of his personal experiences on and off the ice, and offers the lessons he's learned along the way. This is Don Cherry: straight up and personal.

Baker & Taylor
The sportscaster draws on his own experiences to offer musings on hockey, from his time as a player and coach to the 2014 Stanley Cup finals and the state of hockey today.

Love the hockey world according to Grapes.
Don is not afraid to ruffle feathers. Not a fan of the leadership in the NHL.
Bettman has to go. Over paid flunky. Another Canadien team should be granted.
