Don Cherry has made some ridiculous comments over the years. Controversial statements from Cherry are the norm. You can add some more to his resume as he has now taken a firm and unbelievable stance defending Buffalo's John Scott.
On his Hockey Night in Canada segment, Cherry defended Scott and believes Scott's actions were due to limited time on the ice. Due to his limited role, Scott tried to make an impact. Cherry sympathizes with Scott despite the fact Scott's actions are inexcusable.
