I think the more shocking thing is that Milbury can write with something other than a crayon. :ph34r:

I hope we've all learned a valuable lesson from this. Never, ever listen to anything Mike Milbury has to say.



Exception: He's ringing you with a trade offer.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

You think someone would trust him with an NHL team?

I want Pierre McGuire's opinion on this.


He'd probably just say that Stuart's chinstrap wasn't tight enough and that's why his jaw got broken.

And speaking of politics, this decision smells of it. It involves Detroit, a classy organization that mostly disdains the rough and tumble game for an efficient and skilful one. They bitched. The league listened. They fell to the growing whiff of (mostly) media-created frenzy about the dangers of head shots.


did anybody else find it odd they used that language on a national news website?

and yes, milbury is a choad.
Crosby is a crybaby *****

Do they actually pay him for this sort of nonsensical spewage? <_<


This is from a guy whose most memorable moment as a player or as a coach was to jump in the stands and beat a guy with his own shoe. Without a doubt Milbury is a caveman and a ******, but I don't think he is dumb. He knows being a caveman and a ****** gets people going and are his most marketable traits. If he stops being a caveman, JR is waiting in the wings to pick up the ****** mantle. If he stops being both, there are a million has-beens ready for his job.

works every time

Milbury is a joke guys. He's widely considered the most hilariously terrible GM of recent history and as a player he beat a man with his shoe. How many times have we laughed at the Yashin for Chara+someguy+1st(Spezza)? Check out the list of retarded moves Milbury made in Long Island during his career as a franchies-raper:

Yeah - for a guy that blows alot of steam on HNIC/NESN/NBC - the guy really blew as a GM.

Can't wait until NBC does games again so I can put the mute on for that channel's intermissions, too.

How's that Luongo trade looking, Mike?

Milbury was a terrible gm, but he is a great analyst, he isn't politically correct, yet he isn't senile like cherry, he says things like they are, and occasionally goes over the line if it is a team he hates (philly, nyr, detroit) Eric Francis, now that guy is a piece of s*** who has the IQ of a monkey and doesn't belong on tv

How can a guy like Milbury still be employed? Can he actually do anything noteworthy? All I see is that he spits BS all around on a regular basis.

Agreed - although I still get a kick outta Grapes, and just like Milbury he has some valid points/insight.

Mike Milbury disagreeing with the suspension means that it was 100% the right move.

It still baffles me that the NHL has a deal with NBC and is entirely okay with them not showing games until late January (not counting the WC).

I wonder how much better the Islanders would be with Luongo, Chara, Spezza and Bertuzzi... Man, that Milbury guy is one of the great hockey minds of his generation. Getting beaten in the skull for years makes you smarter, right?

Can't wait until NBC does games again so I can watch Milbury get flustered when one of the other people in studio brings up the Islanders in an argument.

That's pretty charitable. His obvious hatred for certain teams and distain for anyone who disagrees with him kind of hurt his credibility as an analyst. Sometimes he looks like he's going to jump the guy on the other side of the table just for disagreeing with him.

With Grapes, you just wanna kinda nod your head and think "aww, you poor old, senile bastard" and then pat him gently on the shoulder.
