MIKE MILBURY NEWS

Was the 1999 NHL Draft the worst in history?

Every June, the NHL Draft is a time when struggling franchises pin their hopes on the next great thing while the contenders look to stock the cupboard with pieces that will keep them in power for years to come. Some drafts – 2003 comes to mind – have been ridiculously stacked, with seemingly every team finding value in the first round while others manage to find value later...

Four Thoughts: 6/17

1) Final takeaways of the 2014-15 season… I’m very well aware my Tampa in 7 prediction fell flat on its face, Tyler Johnson’s broken wrist and Ben Bishop’s torn groin be damned, regardless of what Mike Milbury says. My expectations that Tampa’s depth would rise to the top and overwhelm the Blackhawks’ very short staffed defensive core came up woefully short. Steve Stamkos...

The Islanders are finally done paying Alexei Yashin

The story has become infamous. The New York Islanders acquired star forward Alexei Yashin in 2001 at an amazingly high cost, trading future Norris Trophy winner Zdeno Chara, the 2011 second overall pick (which turned out to be Jason Spezza) and Bill Muckalt for the Russian forward. If dealing those youngsters wasn’t enough, New York general manager Mike Milbury inked Yashin to...

Blackhawks cement dynasty with third Cup in five years

How the hell did this even happen? On the micro level, the Chicago Blackhawks couldn’t have started this year’s Stanley Cup playoffs on a worse note. Twenty minutes into the tournament, the Hawks trailed Nashville 3-0 as Corey Crawford wobbled to the bench for unheralded replacement Scott Darling. The Hawks somehow came back to win that game 4-3, that series and then the three...

Video: Milbury says Crawford is “going straight to hell” after allowing a bad goal

2015 Stanley Cup Final Schedule

Well, it wasn’t the dream matchup that NBC was hoping for, but with Chicago in the Stanley Cup Final, the Peacock should still do well even with Tampa Bay. NBCSN registered a very strong 2.65 overnight rating for the Eastern Conference Final Game 7 between Tampa Bay and the New York Rangers on Friday. That’s up 53% from the last ECF Game 7 in 2011 which was between Tampa Bay...

Islanders Insight Top Shelf: 5/23/15

I guess the New York Islanders were just not ready for prime time this season. After an incredible jump in the standings to 101 points and a hard-fought seven game elimination at the hands of the Washington Capitals, general manager Garth Snow, who has done a terrific job staying the course and rebuilding the franchise that Mike Milbury absolutely tore down, was not named as one...

Ducks grind out Game 3 victory over Blackhawks

Until the Anaheim Ducks finish off the Chicago Blackhawks and make it back to the Stanley Cup Final, they will endure comparisons to past franchise failures. Anaheim has been up on powerhouse teams in the postseason before, only to crumble when it was do-or-die time. It's too early to say whether this edition is different, but the Ducks are showing character and an ability to win...

Luongo: The One That Got Away

Of all the moves Mike Milbury made as general manager of the New York Islanders before he stepped down in 2006, one had to be the worst, right? The biggest chip in what  many believe was his worst move still plays in the National Hockey League and could play for the Florida Panthers against Islanders tomorrow night, Roberto Luongo. And don’t look at the standings before the game...

Game 40: A classic rivalry renewed against the Islanders

When was the last time the Rangers and Islanders played a meaningful regular season game this late in the seaseon? I honestly can’t remember.

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 90

The mid-to-late 90’s were a disaster period for the Islanders. With Al Arbour gone, a change in ownership and in the general manager, the Islanders were a floundering organization with little positivity to offer to the NHL. There was a bright spot however, and he quickly became a fan favorite. With 90 days to go, we’ll take a look at Zigmund Palffy’s career year in 1996-97...

Mike Milbury Rips Phil Kessel, Says He’s A ‘Pain In The (Behind)’ (Video)

Well, we know the next guy Phil Kessel will be calling an idiot. During Wednesday night’s broadcast of the Boston Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins on NBCSN, Mike Milbury took some time out to lay into the beleaguered Toronto Maple Leafs, and more specifically, star Phil Kessel. Milbury didn’t hold anything back, calling the winger “a pain in the ass,” among many other things...
