09:42 AM ET 10.08 | Don Cherry is sorry. For using the words "pukes" on national television, that is. But when it comes to ripping into former NHL enforcers Chris Nilan, Jim Thomson and Stu Grimson during his Coach's Corner Segment on Hockey Night in Canada on Thursday night, Cherry says he has no regrets. In fact, in a phone interview with QMI Agency late Friday afternoon, Cherry said he will be making no apologies to any of the three retired players, even after Nilan called for the veteran analyst to do exactly that on HNIC.

Indeed! I can't wait for Coaches Corner tonight.

I wonder who's playing on HNIC at 7pm EDT?

Too bad I won't be watching. I'll be too busy at the game :)

And spending the afternoon getting a second mortgage so you afford to buy a beer? ;-)

Hold up a sign that says "Hi Canuck eh?"

Some fighters of years past wouldn't have made it in any era of the sport without fighting. Several fighters past and present actually had some decent hockey skills, but these guys Cherry is calling out should shut up.

He's wrong fairly often, IMO. But he's right here.

Nilan says he never said to take fighting out of the game...Cherry points out where he actually did...in the newpapers yet. Way to go Knuckles.

Speaking of old coots, Al Davis died. Sad.

Requiescat in pace, Al.

Although he had a lot of rough spots, especially of late, no-one can deny him impact on the AFL then the NFL.
