"Coach's Corner is no more", the 59-year-old MacLean said.
After being fired from Sportsnet in early November, Don Cherry is making a rapid return to the airwaves. "You people ... you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey, at least you can pay a couple bucks for a poppy or something like that", Cherry said on November 9. Viewers were given a sample during Saturday's first intermission which also featured a segment with MacLean interviewing Hayley Wickenheiser and Guy Carbonneau, two members of the 2019 Hockey Hall of Fame induction class. While some held a rally in Toronto outside of Sportsnet and called for a boycott, others found his comments regarding immigrants wearing poppies to be problematic.
Moore declined to discuss specifics on Cherry's departure. "I think it was a mistake", he said of his remarks.
"We are all hurting", said an emotional MacLean.
HNIC was a longtime CBC Saturday night time staple, however the present and its video games moved to Sportsnet in 2014 after Rogers agreed to a profitable, long-term rights take care of the National Hockey League.

Bettman, a panellist on the PrimeTime sports activities administration convention on Monday at a downtown Toronto lodge, stated MacLean "obviously made his feelings clear".
"So for people to say that Ron should have solved this problem, they are naive about the process and are being unfair to Ron", Moore added. "But then I thought if I do that I infer what happened was right somehow, or that I am going along to get along, or that I am going to just sit silently by or be a bystander again in a situation".
Cherry joined HNIC in 1980 as a playoff analyst and was so popular that he was kept on as a colour commentator. CBC later created "Coach's Corner" as a automobile to showcase Cherry, with MacLean finally changing Dave Hodge as co-host.
"We're taking the time to explore new formats for the first intermission", Sportsnet communications director Andrew Garas said in an email to The Canadian Press late Friday afternoon.
A Postmedia report on Monday said that Cherry was starting a new podcast, with the first episode scheduled for release Tuesday.
