Mike Milbury Changes His Tune

From Bruce Dowbiggin at the Globe and Mail:

“You can’t live in a vacuum,” the former NHL player and executive says. “We have seen dramatic changes, and they’ve caused a ripple effect. I think the latest [projected] number is 100 concussions in the NHL this season. I’ve been all for letting it go, but when you see that, you have to sit back and rethink it.”

Call it a recantation. Call it an enlightenment. Long-time Hockey Night in Canada viewers were taken aback on March 5 by his abrupt change of course. Colleague Pierre LeBrun said whimsically: “The wussification of Mike Milbury, never thought I’d see it.”

Citing the number of concussions resulting from the league’s fisticuffs, particularly the staged version, Milbury conceded: “The only reason we have fighting in the game is because we like it.”
