A few more Milbury notes...

New York Islanders traded Todd Bertuzzi, Bryan McCabe (later turned into a Sedin) and 3rd round selection (Jarkko Ruutu) in 1998 to the Vancouver Canucks for Trevor Linden (later traded for Branislav Mezei).

Also, he vetoed his scouting staff's year long body of work just before the draft in the 2000 draft to take Rick Dipietro over the man who was their choice, Marian Gaborik. Apparently trusting the advice of Harry Sinden over the opinion of the professionals he had hired for the job.
