It’s Time For Charles Wang To Sell The New York Islanders

from Richard Sandomir of the New York Times, Wang knew little about hockey and made some bizarre decisions, including elevating Garth Snow, a backup goaltender, to general manager, according to Mike Milbury, a former general manager, and wanting to get rid of the team’s scouts. Milbury recalled two years ago that Wang had wanted to try out sumo wrestlers in the crease. ...

Infamous Pens' Fan Gets Booted From Game by NBC- Mike Milbury Crushes Penguins

Grass is green, the sky is blue, and Pittsburgh Penguins fans are complaining about the NBC coverage of their team. NBC has apparently done two different things to piss off Pens fans today. One is the completely biased lashing that "analyst" (And I use that term lightly) Mike Milbury gave the Penguins. The other was lifelong and infamous Penguins' fan, Cy Clark, aka...

Mike Milbury and Paul Bissonette are trading barbs

Mike Milbury tends to inspire a wide range of feelings to viewers of the NHL on NBC. Many of them are not necessarily positive. Anytime I mention the man known as “Mad Mike” on Twitter, I’m bound to see a bunch of angry responses, usually based on Milbury’s tenure as an NHL general manager. One such dissenter is NHL enforcer and Twitter maven Paul Bissonette, whom many of...

How Brooks Orpik Got Mike Milbury's Panties in a Bunch by @ChicksDigHockey

There are five things hockey fans need to know that some sports commentators haven't learned.1.            Even clean hits can result in injury. All contact sports have rules predicated on safely making contact with the other player with the goal in mind of stopping them. We tend to fall into the trap of thinking bodychecking is as easy as pushing the B button. It...

Paul Bissonnette Does Not Appear To Respect The Opinions Of Mike Milbury

After a controversial hit by Brooks Orpik left Jonathan Toews injured with a shoulder injury, Mike Milbury went on a rant about the Penguins defenseman on NBCSN.

Mike Milbury bashes Brooks Orpik for Hit on Toews

It  is safe to say that Brooks Orpik's hit on Chicago Blackhawks' center, Jonathan Toews, will be talked about until your ears bleed for the next week or so. Of course, the NHL won't be able to celebrate anything positive, instead the NHL will have the likes of old-time hockey talking heads discussing whether or not Orpik's hit on Towes was illegal or not.

Underwhelming Overtime: Is it Time to Nix the Shootout?

Obviously the diehard purists like Don Cherry and Mike Milbury are the loudest voices in the room when it comes to anything that could possibly taint the sanctity of Canada’s sacred sport, but now...
