I'm glad you're 100% absolutely sure this resurgence had nothing whatsoever to do with Milbury's comments and that Oates never once, covertly or overtly, intimated that Ovechkin should focus on being a hockey player first and a celebrity second.

On both accounts, Don would hardly be the first to make those connections. It doesn't mean it's right but it is something somewhat interesting to talk about on the radio don't you think?
Who cares if Milbury said it? Milbury just had a platform to voice his opinions. He did nothing to fix the situation, therefore he gets no credit.
