Oh, Really, Mr. Milbury?

So, earlier tonight, I was sitting on my couch getting ready for the Caps/Wings game tonight for Wednesday Night "Rivalry."  Naturally, I flipped over to watch the pregame show with Liam McHugh, Keith Jones, and, of course, the ever-lovable Mike Milbury.  Unsurprisngly, the current pointless streak (4 games going into tonight) of Alexander Ovechkin was up for discussion.  And, then, this happened:

"No one questions the effort of Alex Ovechkin..."

I had to rewind and doublecheck to make sure, but that was none other than Mike Milbury.  Oh, really?  

I really shouldn't have to prove it to anybody that regularly watches/listens to Mike Milbury that he's usually not a fan of Alex Ovechkin, but let's just see if we can find somebody questioning Ovechkin's effort.

"If you put him up to those two standards tonight, he fails the test miserably.  This is an awful display of hockey by Alex Ovechkin.  He should be ashamed of himself."
"Get up and act like a man for God's sake.  And this one, move your butt along the wall.  You're just standing there.  I've seen this for three years.  You'd think somebody would figure this out and tell him that he's got to move.  And look at the effort on the backcheck there.  Are you kidding me?  This is a guy that makes a ton of money.  He owes it to his owner; he owes it to his coach."
That was Mike Milbury on February 27, 2013.  Just a hair over 600 days ago.  But I guess I shouldn't give Mr. Milbury too much grief.  He also confused a Heath Ledger Joker costume with Johnny Depp from Alice in Wonderland

You can always count on Milbury or Jones to say something completely idiotic.  Fits in perfectly with the NBC announcing crew.
