Mike Milbury scored some serious points (with me, anyway) when he got into a bitchfest with Jeremy Roenick last month. This morning, the former Islanders coach and current NBC-Comcast-Versus-mega-conglomerate analyst was a guest on the WIP Morning Show, where he gave Angelo, Al and Rhea his thoughts on the yesterday’s melee in Pittsburgh.
Two highlights. [transcriptions via Spike Eskin, CBSPhilly]
On Dan Bylsma:
“I can remember being on such a perch, or at least trying to climb over the boards to get at somebody to make a point. And I thought Dan Bylsma should have taken off his skirt and gone over there.”
On Sidney Crosby:
“So you know, Crosby gets cross-checked, big whoop. He said after he came back from his 35th concussion, ‘I’m not going to do this anymore, I’m not going to get into this scrums, I’m going to stay away from that stuff.’ He couldn’t help himself because there’s a little punk in Crosby. He’s not the perfect gentleman. He’s not the sweet kid you see in interviews with his hat pulled down over his eyes. I’d say screw him, hit him.”
Good point. And you know, you can’t spell Crosby without “cry.”
