Mike Milbury Says Penguins Coach Dan Bylsma Should Have “Taken Off His Skirt”

Screen Shot 2012-04-02 at 12.09.19 PMDoes this hat make my ass look fat?

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.

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.”


I don’t know about his skirt, but he certainly should have removed his dainty reading glasses. Instead, he hid behind Peter Laviolette’s former Team USA teammate, Tony Granato. 

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.”

  1. the amount of hatred i have had and still do have for the city of pittsburgh, its people, and especially the penguins is ridiculous. i really hope we beat them in the playoffs or ill be beyond pissed. either way itll be a hell of a series.

  2. Well now Mario will be crying to the league to have NBC remove Milbury from Pens coverage. watch.

  3. I have to hand it to the NothingButCrosby crew…They were actually pretty level headed yesterday. They called out Crybaby Crosby a buncha times for his slashing, called out Malkin for sucker punching Giroux in the back of the head while he was down, and Milbury himself kind of backtracked from two weeks ago. He pretty much went so far as to say that they went a little overboard with Pens mania during the previous telecast. I’m paraphrasing, but he said something along the lines of “We pretty much sealed the deal and handed the whole thing to Pittsburgh before, but they’re proving that its anyones game to win right now, and their defense has been leaking goals left and right.” It was the first time I’ve ever seen them provide Pens coverages that slightly more objective than subjective.

    Flyers are 5-0 in the House that Bobrovsky Built. And counting.

  7. You cannot spell “CROSBY” without “CRY”
    You cannot spell “PENGUINS” without “PENIS”
    MALKIN looks like Andre the Giant…..-As Arnold would say, “You’re one ugly mudda-fukkah”!!!

  8. 1975 1975 1975 1975 1975
    Trying winning a Cup this century assclowns.

  9. Just because I happen to like what Mike Milbury says this time around doesn’t mean he is anything less than a complete douchebag. He’s a slightly more evolved Don Cherry, minus the suits.
    There were no victims on either team – both were playing dirty. The only difference was that Dan Bylsma and Sidney Crosby physically cowered behind others when the going got tough. It was great hockey and I can’t wait for this Saturday’s game.

  10. I honestly believe Pens fans would suck Crosbys dick if he dropped his pants. I just want to punch that stupid fucker in his face.

  11. bylsma couldn’t fight his way out of the broken rubber he came from

  12. Again all you Filly fans can kiss the Black n’ Gold’s A#$! You won’t win a Superbowl or a Stanley Cup! Your just NYC Lite and have no identity of your own!

  13. When died the guy from drake and josh suit up for the penguins…he was sure able to lose his ruski accent when he was a nickelodeon star

  14. Pittsburgh Fan Here!!! Cryers Stink!!! When was the last time YINZ Won A Stanley Cup?
    Don’t Hate Because We Have The Two Best Players In The World! Come At ME!

  15. Anyone with with a handle like “#1 PENS FAN” has got to be a serious pussy. Really, asshole, get a life.

  16. #1 Pens Fan. The League gave you Jello Head and Malkin shut the fuck up. After we beat you, I want you and Chirp off my site

  17. Glad to see Pittsburgh has Internet capability. Keep trolling on Philly boards Douchebags…get back to what you’re best at. Unemployment and Incest.

  18. Wow! You guys are so hate filled taking cheap shots at the Pens and Pittsburgh. How mature you all are! I dare any one of you to come to Pittsburgh and tell someone that to their face! Just because you can hide behind your keyboards, it makes you the “tough guy internet bully” It really doesn’t. It makes you sad and pathetic to sling mud at Pittsburgh.
    You accuse #1 PENS FAN of being 12. My nine year old daughter is more mature than the whole lot of you.
    Get over yourselves, it is a game.

  19. Ah, yes. More typical “We’d rather see 10 fights and feel tough than win hockey games” Flyers bullshit. Fuck off faggots. We’ll see you next week when it counts. I think we all know how that usually goes. 1975. 1975. 1975. 1975. 1975.

  20. Really? “Tony Granato”? How many Cups did you win? Your sister has more awards than you. I guess that’s why you boned her after getting your fifteen minutes yesterday.

  21. Look Pens fans, you better really cherish having the 2 best players in the game, but soon enough our boy Claude is going to catch them in pts per gm!! He’s not as close as I’d like him to be right now but facts are facts, numbers don’t lie…you lucky bastards!! AND you won the cup in 09, damn I HATE YOU!!!
    Claude Giroux PPG is 1.19
    Sidney Crosby PPG is 1.63
    Evgeni Malkin PPG is 1.44

  22. It just sucks ya know….I mean I was born in 1984…the Flyers haven’t won dick since and the team I hate the most has won 3 cups! Like seriously? I mean if it weren’t for the Phillies we’d have NOTHING! Why couldn’t Malkin or Crosby have wound up in Philly??? I mean it would be so awesome b/c A: Pitt wouldn’t have both and B: we’d probably have a cup by now!!!

  23. The Flyers are cheap and dirty. It goes both ways. Bylsma put out a 4th line because even when up by 3 goals the Flyers ALWAYS pull some dirty cheap nonsense. Scottie “carrot-top” Hartnell bit Letang. That’s classy. Sorry little rat-boy Danny couldn’t take a clean hit like a man. Even your assistant coach was a goon. One of the cheapest, dirtiest player of his time. The shit talk is ridiculous. It goes both ways and comes from both teams.

  24. Sounds to me like most of those “crying” here are Flyers fans.
    Don’t be hating on Disco Dan, he clearly showed how a professional acts.
    PS – We want Simmonds back, in fact we never wanted him to go.

  25. Lol the Crosby/Malkin hate is awesome. You Flyer f*cks talk about those two as much or more than any Pens fan I know. Funny your only argument against Malkin is his appearance…I guess skill doesn’t matter, it’s whether you’d bang him or not. Oh, and “cry baby” Crosby? Lol I don’t remember him ever throwing a g*dd*mn temper tantrum, breaking sticks and jumping on the boards to b*tch someone out over a clean hit like Laviolette did. Oh, and Milbury here? Didn’t he borderline assault a 12-year-old kid because he was playing “too rough” for his kid? Yeah, I think it’s pretty obvious who the real punk is. Not to mention I haven’t heard anyone, Pittsburgh media, Pens fans, whatever, make light of Pronger’s concussion the way people like to do about Sid’s. STAY CLASSY. Enjoy your regular-season successes because it’s all you’re gonna have.

  26. Remember When Penguins fans didn’t exist, the team was about to move, and then suddenly they got good and there were a bunch of Penguins fans talking like they’ve been there all along> Oh, that’s right now?
    My bad.

  27. flyers fans ROFL
    3/4 of you weren’t even born when the last time your useless shitty team won a cup. Your existence is useless

  28. It is cute how all you Philth-a-delia fans call all your players like Scottie and Danny, it is perfect for your type of complaints cause some real menout played your little boys…..If your filthey fans had any class you would not yell F*** You Sidney so all the NHL fans could hear how low class you really are. I am from Pittsburgh and I see when all you, steak-n-cheesed, greassy, fans come here and get picked up for Drunk and Diss at every sporting game you come to… True PIGS !!! So enjoy having Eddie (Fired from Pens) Olczyk, Pierre (Let go from Pens) McGuire Le’ Deuche, and, Mikey (etcha-sketh) Millbury, I will spell it out for you dumb a** Filley fans He loves Pittsburgh, when he”s here and then he hates Pittsburgh when he”s in your DUMP… Just ask Jeffery Roenik “Go Broad Street Bullies” What DICKS !!!
