Is Milbury An Idiot?

from Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

I’m not one for name-calling, as longtime readers can attest. Never have been. So please understand I apply this term here only in the direct spirit of its official Webster definition: Mike Milbury is an idiot.

The definition is “showing foolishness or stupidity.” Decide for yourself …

He’s an idiot if that’s really him giving this interview to Philadelphia’s WIP Radio.

He’s an idiot if he thinks he can be viewed as a serious national analyst on NHL broadcasts after he assails one specific team for the benefit of momentary yucks from the other side.

He’s an idiot if he thinks he can accuse Dan Bylsma of wearing “a skirt” for not engaging Peter Laviolette between the benches Sunday, when Milbury’s most recent violent engagement in public involved being charged with assaulting a 12-year-old boy.

One more thing, the ability to block out blogs from the homepage has worked out wonderfully.

Bloggers are ok with it and more importantly, we don’t have the problems we used to have with some of the blogs.

Yeah. Here’s to hoping you’re correct.

I would propose we have some sort of scoreboard so we can keep track of which people get blocked by the most commenters.

I think I can make a pretty solid top-five push.

I’m thinking that I’m on a few shortlists.

Why is everyone skirting around the real issue here, Crosby and Malkin get special treatment no one can do nothing about it.. They can do anything the want with no problems and they cry all they want accusing other players of being dirty. Craig Berube was calling them the direst players on there team yesterday.

Well, whatever.  I didn’t watch the game, but nothing that goes on in the corner during the play should result in a shot on the way to the bench.  There should be a very clear crackdown on after the whistle shit.  Also, and again, I’m not a Crosby fan, why is it cool with anybody to hit someone who’s not looking?

Ten years ago the Flyers org thought Lindros was soft because he wouldn’t play with a punctured lung. Now they’re frightened of being killed by Sidney Crosby. Not sure which is worse.

Yeah, those poor tough Flyers being pushed around by Crosby and Malkin.

Give me a break.

The other thing is, didn’t Briere freak the eff out for a month when Ovechkin did to him the same as Schenn did to Crosby (and between the whistles, not 30 seconds after)? Didn’t he make a way bigger deal out of that than the Penguins have?

i don’t understand why people are debating if Milbury is idiot. Look at the writer of the story. All writers today are hacks and look for anything to write about for dying industry. Plus all sports have idiots doing tv.

Another uninformed pens fans. I’ll say it again it about the treatment these two clowns get from league office to what ever they want and ever suffer the consequences. Especially Malkin, someday who will get his hockey justice coming to him.

Uninformed? Try reading Jones’ book about how Clarke treated Lindros. Here’s a preview: Dizziness + vomiting -> miss a game = soft and selfish in Clarke’s eyes. And now Berube and Briere are frightened for their lives by the likes of Sidney Crosby, an undersized skill player, and Joe Vitale, a faceoff specialist. Both postures are shameful for opposite reasons.

And what’s this bit about the “league office.” When’s the last time the “league office,” whatever that is, suspended anybody for slashing another guy in the hip pads? I have your answer—never. Without wood sticks and with the armor modern players wear, that doesn’t even leave a red mark, let alone bruise. Suspending for that would be as stupid as Berube cringing in terror over the prospect that someone might get slashed in the chainmail with a noodle during an intense game. Laviolette must have this guy’s nuts in the cellar of his whinery. Sad day.

Cy Clarke (Hulk Hogan) writes a blog for, I think, the website the guy who used to cover the Penguins for this website runs. I don’t exactly read it regularly and don’t recall it being particularly insightful, but also don’t have any recollection of strange punctuation or inexplicable Jordan Staal hatred in the little that I read.

I want to apologize for the Evil Pens idiot. He is making us all look bad. He should be banned from this site. But I also don’t get how it is OK to tolerate the passive-aggressive crap from the Wings fans. I guess you can be a pompous-ass blogger here because you can hide behind your keyboard and make it sound like you know everything.

C’mon JJ….that’s like my kids saying back to each other “and so are you.” Can you really honestly say that some (not all) of the Wings fans are passive aggressive?

What exactly is Berube trying to do here?  Stir the pot?  Fire up the Pens two best players?  Philly has owned the season series, yet it was their coach that made Sunday a circus.  Why give the Pens any type of motivation?
