Milbury is what we used to call a 'hammerhead' back in the Bronx. that mellon head of his is good for driving nails, and little else.

I'm not aware of Isles history. I know he did the lovly Chara/spezza for Yashin trade. Did MM trade Luongo, too?!!?! :giggle:



"He has traded away defensemen Zdeno Chara, Wade Redden, Bryan Berard, Eric Brewer, Darius Kasparaitis, and Bryan McCabe; goalies Roberto Luongo and Tommy Salo, as well as forwards Olli Jokinen, Todd Bertuzzi, Tim Connolly, and Raffi Torres. Milbury has also come under fire for his draft day decisions such as choosing Rick DiPietro first overall in 2000 over Dany Heatley and Marian Gaborik; as well as his decision to include the 2001 second overall draft pick (Jason Spezza) as part of the Alexei Yashin trade."


This man shouldn't even be legally allowed to have an opinion on anything hockey related.

Am I the only one who notices that Milbury is, shall we say, a little muted when the discussion turns to Luongo? I mean Mark Parish and Oleg Kvasha were great players.

There are a few select times you can get away with trading away a player that turns out to be decent, or even a CAPTAIN. But after you do it over and over and over there is no excuse. I'll never forget when Wang was on Mike and Maddog after he, " demoted" milbury. Wang was playing off the fact he fired him. :rolleyes:

I don't really get on GMs too much for unwise draft picks (Lou has had his share), especially in the NHL. Repeatedly bad trades though are another story.

The Parise thing really stood out in the Isles' case though cause his dad played for them and they eschewed potential goodwill for picking him. Not only that but the only real knock on Parise going into the draft was his size, and the Isles passed on him for another smallish forward, a less proven European guy - Nilsson.

Anyone hear Milbury during the second intermission of Czech/Finland talking about Russia? Really starting to sound like he bet a couple grand on Russia.

um, I went out, but what happened to Russia.... well, I was right about goaltenders being optional, at least for Russia. :lol: didn't see it, never will, but that looks like a pretty sad performance. Germany did better.

I thought bad coaching and maybe politics did the Russian team in. I thought Nabby should have been pulled after the 3rd goal, but he was kept in to let in atrocious 4th goal, and then I think the first two shots in the 2nd. No idea what the heck the coach was thinking. I also didn't understand why so many KHLers were put on this team. I didn't think Kozlov and Fedorov had any business being on an Olympic team, but there they were right after they both came back to the KHL this season (Coincidence?...I don't know).

You have all these superstar players, but here you have this coach using mostly all KHL players on the PP during the early games, when he should have used that time to build chemistry between all these superstars. He was giving these KHLers way too much ice time too.

With that being said, a lot of these superstars didn't have good tournaments including Kovalchuk.

As for the Canadians...about time it clicked, and they did it tonight without Crosby being a factor. I asked before the games who would be the breakout star, and I think it is pretty clear from those who have been watching...that the answer is Drew Doughty. This kid is an absolute stud. His poise on the PP is outstanding. He has great speed, a great shot, and is a great passer, but it was his defense tonight on Ovechkin that was most impressive. This kid should have multiple Norris Trophies before his career is done. He is sick. He led all Canadian players in ice-time tonight, and the scary thing is he just turned 20...2 months ago. He is simply ridiculous.
