don cherry challenge brian burke to fightDon Cherry has a long list of enemies, which includes Russians, players who wear visors, The Vancouver Canucks’ Green Men and Alex Ovechkin.

You can now add Toronto Maple Leafs’ GM Brian Burke to that list.

During the latest edition of Coach’s Corner, Cherry was asked what he thought about Burke and the lack of Ontario-born players playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs (they are the only team in the league with no Ontario-born players).  Somehow, that led to a five-minute rant from the 78-year-old, which included a discussion about how Burke went to Cherry’s bosses at CBC and tried to get him fired for something he said about the Leafs’ former head coach, Ron Wilson (Cherry also mentions that coincidentally, Wilson was fired by Burke two weeks later), and ended with a personal challenge directed towards the Leafs’ GM.

Brian Burke never got to rent out that barn in Lake Placid and fight Kevin Lowe like he had hoped to do a few years back, but if he still has the address, he may want to invite Don Cherry over for a one-on-one battle.

The challenge has been issued Brian Burke.  Now it’s you’re move.
