WINNIPEG - Hockey commentator Don Cherry is so bullish on the idea of getting NHL hockey back in Winnipeg, he's prepared to put his money where his famous mouth is.

Cherry told two at least radio interviewers today that, given the opportunity, he would most definitely invest his own money in a new NHL franchise for Winnipeg.

"Yes, it's a winner," Cherry told host Mike Hogan on The Fan 590 sports radio station in Toronto. "I'd be happy to invest."

Cherry said there is no future for NHL hockey in Phoenix and does not understand why the NHL wants to keep a team in the desert at whatever cost.

"It's an endless pit out there," Cherry said. [Hear the full interview on the Fan 590 website.]

Cherry later repeated his offer on Winnipeg's 92 CITI FM.
