Don Cherry might be a bigot and a moron at times, but at times he's also said some smart stuff too. Never been a fan really but I can't deny sometimes he brings up a valid point or two, probably way more often than Eklund comes out with a valid rumor.
prior to cherry's wife passing away he had a lot more credibility and more toned down approach to what he said and was worth watching IMO (i mean hockey stuff in a general sense strictly and not about specific teams/players).. things like no-touch icing, hitting from behind etc etc
