Don Cherry says John Tortorella doesn't need a lengthy time out for trying to get into the Calgary Flames' locker room last week.

During his Coach's Corner segment on Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday, Cherry said that suspending the Vancouver Canucks head coach for 15 days is "too much."

Cherry also explained why he thought Flames' head coach Bob Hartley deserved his punishment of a $25,000 fine for his role in the two teams' opening-faceoff line brawl.
