Mike Milbury is at it again
Posted 13 January 2011 - 08:34 PM
Technically, I would have had it as a charge - maybe. Mostly I had it as a wicked hit on the forecheck to a player who was vulnerable. No elbow. But six games?
Wrong and unfair to Kostopoulos, who unwisely refused to attend the hearing to investigate the hit - which was not good politics - but I admire his decision to make a stand.
Gee i bet that had nothing to do with him maybe getting a excessive punishment?......
Don't call this an uninformed opinion. I researched a ton of recent collisions and many were far more malicious
I guess a broken jaw from a lateral hit to the head.(Which is against rule 48) isn't malicious?
By the way, I read yesterday that there have been 11 snowboarding deaths so far this year in the United States. Where are my media colleagues on this one? I don't even want to know how many have died skiing.
And what does this have to do with the topic?
Just when i thought Milbury couldn't be a bigger joke than he already is....

Because of Francis and LeBrun, Milbury is always schooling them, if you think this article was bad, find an article form Dreger, Cox, or Francis on this incident, it will probably be the steamiest pile of doodoo you will ever read
Another reason why I change the channel at the intermissions of CBC, TSN, and NBC Hockey broadcasts. I don't have time for this kind of analysis.

edit: I was actiually puking while reading this article and was waiting to read the next excuse "The reason he got suspended was because Colin Campbell used to be in the Wings organization and he feels a sense of loyalty to the team that propelled his career."

Which of course means when he plowed into the stands as a player and took on those nasty fans, that was nuthin' but an informational seminar.
I am SO done with him, but I DID take the time to email NESN.
EDIT: YOU guys are talking about an article he wrote. I'm talking about his spew on NESN sometime during or after the Bruins/Rangers game. Will he EVER shut up?

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

My thoughts exactly. Btw, check your PMs
Some issues in the past I agreed with Milbury's position/opinion, but that's not the case here...Kostopoulus has a history of injuring guys when they're vulnerable, and even though I like the rough aspect of hockey - the hit he placed on Stuart was uncalled for.
RIP Bob Probert
RIP Wade Belak
RIP Derek Boogaard
RIP Rick Rypien
