Don Cherry remains a cultural icon in Canada.

Many Canadian hockey fans see Don Cherry on his "Coach's Corner" segment on the CBC production of Hockey Night in Canada.

Cherry has been broadcasting since 1981, and he is known for his garish sports jackets and outrageous opinions. While many of the fans who watch his show embrace him, many others are revolted by his words and ideas.

There are few who have neutral opinions about Cherry.

Prior to his broadcasting career, he was a solid NHL coach. He led the Boston Bruins from 1974 through 1979, and they were a scintillating, hardworking team that regularly beat opponents on the scoreboard and in the back alley. The Bruins of that era were known as "Lunch Pail AC" because they were known for their blue-collar mentality.

The Bruins of that era had the misfortune to compete against the Montreal Canadiens, and that team may have been the greatest in NHL history.

Cherry's known for getting on his soapbox and ranting.

Here are 13 of his best, and one more at the end that you won't want to miss.
