Most of what he says is met with facepalms from the normal fans around here
I think he was doing his job well. Part of the measure of the act is how well he channels the fury and passion that fans feel. As a Bruins fan, I would be nodding to everything he said. And I know that because as a Habs fan I watch those games and mutter to myself aloud, like a nutter, what a bunch of fraud tough guys etc Boston has.

But I also think that Milbury's message really was for the benefit of Bruins' fans. There was truth to what he was saying, which I heard to be: Boston is a good team, and Montreal has become a good team again, and Boston will lose to them if they give into their hubristic obsession with toughness to the point of being distracted from playing like the good team that they actually are.
