Don Cherry not a fan of concussion lawsuit, asks Rogers not to 'ruin a good thing'

Don Cherry took his usual spot on Hockey Night in Canada's Coach's Corner segment beside Ron MacLean to discuss the future of the segment, the concussion lawsuit, and fighting.

Cherry spent the majority of the segment talking about Kevin "Bieska" having a lot of rage while fighting Brian Boyle, but Ron MacLean did get him back on track if only for a moment. 

The long awaited announcement on the future of Coach's Corner and Cherry's future with the company was made briefly as, per usual, they were pressed for time. 

"Let's just talk about something here, I'm happy with the way things are. The big thing is... the year I left Bobby Orr alone was when he had his best season ever. Let's take it easy, don't try and ruin a good thing. Just leave us alone and it'll be just as good next year."

While it was an anticlimactic announcement, Cherry made his opinion known about the concussion lawsuit against the NHL collecting over 200 participants. "This is a money grab as far as I'm concerned. All of a sudden 200 guys say they didn't know the danger going into the National Hockey League."

Cherry went on to explain the players who have joined the lawsuit who have played "14, 15" games in the NHL are just looking to cash in.
