In response to zamboni24's comment:
Milbury can't come to the realization that he was a marginal player, a mediocre coach and one of the worst GM's in the history of the NHL. And now he's the Court Jester of hocky analysts. Give him credit though -- he's a real menace with a shoe in his hand.
He played 754 NHL games. Hardly marginal.
He coached the B's to five of seven playoffs wins. That's pretty good.
His GM moves were made at the direction of Wang.
I think he does a fine job as an analyst.
He's been in pro hockey for 40 years. I give him a ton of credit.
Number of games played -- I give him credit for the survival aspect but never ranked up there with the better d-men in the league. Got support from some pretty good players
Got to coach players like Bourque, Neely, Janny, Etc -- On the plus side credit due -- 2 of the playoff series wins were against Habs.
Letting a ditz like Wang control you as a GM makes me realize how dumb he really is.
On the other hand he must be pretty smart to have NBC Sports continue to pay him and put him on the air. He has calmed his act down a bit this year. Maybe he's afraid JR might get up and do a McSorley/Nystorm beatdown on him again.
Yes -- 40 years is a long time to bounce around from one hockey job to another. Next try -- Zamboni driver
