Over 10,000 people have signed a petition to remove Mike Milbury from NBC broadcasts

While the NHL on NBC has drawn plenty of praise from hockey fans over its 10 seasons, some of its analysts are more controversial. Pierre McGuire and Jeremy Roenick have each taken plenty of ribbing over the years, but the biggest lightning rod on NBC’s coverage might be former shoe-brawling player,  coach and general manager Mike Milbury, whose introductory paragraph on Wikipedia...

NHL All-Star Game pulls best overnight rating ever on NBCSN

John Scott wins NHL All-Star MVP, zings Jeremy Roenick

It’s John Scott’s world and we’re all just living in it.  After the iconic everyman was voted into the 2016 NHL All-Star Game and named captain, it would have been a great story if it had ended with his stepping on the ice, getting a standing ovation, and having that be the fairy-tale conclusion. But Scott didn’t settle for that.  The enforcer with just 5 career goals...

RECAP: The NHL All-Star Tournament was fantastic

We think the All-Star Game format was spectacular, but we don’t know the psychological factors that are influencing our decision. Do we honestly think the 3-on-3 was more engaging than any All-Star Game in recent memory? Yes.
