But seriously, what does 'Thelma and Louise' even mean? They weren't siblings, they weren't known for being weak (which is what Milbury implies), so he's basically just saying the Sedins are women. Wow. That's some scathing criticism there Mike. He may as well have just called them Brooke Shields and Billie Jean King.
For what it's worth I as a Bruin's fan find those kinds of comments very unprofessional. I realize he (and others like Healy) are not journalists but it still makes me cringe to hear that crap come out of their mouths.
In one sentance they will be talking about how players need to respect each other in regards to hits etc and in the next breath they are calling guys childish names.

They were in each first period, they need to get off to a good start, score the first goal and they will relax a bit. On a side note - Erhoff and Bieksa were both pencilled in for 5.5 to 6m paydays two weeks a go. They don t look like that now.

Go Boston. Vancouver almost made me lose faith in hockey. The Panthers play with more conviction...in the preseason.

Hate to say it, but the Canucks are severely bruised and battered at this point. Not sure they have enough gas like they did in previous series, hope I'm wrong.

Nucks have to get back to tight D and strong forecheck and use their speed. Stop engaging the Bruins physically and play hockey. The lesson we didn't learn until it was too late. They have to tilt the ice again. The loss of Horton will catch up to them if the Nucks clamp down on D.

Horton has scored a lot of clutch goals, but some of them were really lucky. DK has been their best forward as far as I'm concerned.

As with others on this board, the thought of Boston winning the cup makes me a bit sick. The only guy on the B’s I am OK with is Thomas (American boy who has worked his *ss off to get the chance at a cup).
Same.

In the past I never really hated the bruins. I didn't like them. I was mad as hell when McClaren (sp?) cheap shotted Zednik, and I never really liked them. But after everything that's happened this season, I despise that team with a passion... God I hate them. If Vancouver loses... I'll hate them more for allowing the bruins to win it all.

Yeah I wish both teams could lose. I think this year its because the Bruins adopted a similar attitude as some of their fans where they are the victims of all this garbage and they are taking care of it, everyone else dives yada yada yada. The worst is watching pansies like Krejci and marchand skate around like they are 6'5 because they know they wont have to answer for anything or god forbid Krejci challenge someone and get his ass handed to him and then it's Pouliot thinking he is a tough guy picking on poooooooor krejci.

Or Julien, Krecji and Marchand whining like little *****es about cheapshots when they played (and lost to) the Habs. Kesler and the Sedins get slashed and/or cross-checked in the lower back every time they're within 10 feet of Thomas. I didn't think it was possible but this season Claude Julien has been whining even more than Boudreau.

I'm not counting the Canucks out just yet. They're back home in front of their fans and will feed on that. There's no denying that tonight is Luongo's biggest game in his life. If he chokes, he'll never get rid of that label. As for game 6, all they have to do is score first and silence the crowd. Bruins aren't good in Boston when they're trailing behind in a game. Their crowd gets impatient when they're on the PP and Bruins can't handle it.

I can see the Canucks win two more home games. I still have faith in them.

Not quite sure where you get this, but games 1 and 2 it was vancouver getting the bounces. either one of those games boston was right in it, capable of winning in the end unlike the 2 games in boston. this series could very well be over if it werent for a couple brain farts by boston in games 1 and 2. If there is another nailbiter tonight i can see boston pulling it out with a bounce, they are due one against the canucks..

Mike Milbury is on his own planet. Not really sure what he is thinking sometimes. He called out Lucic this year for playing too "lady bing" like.

Kesler and the Sedins have been neutralized, their desire to win has been sucked out of them.

Boston blows out the next two games, wins the cup at home and Neely rejoices.
I was thinking the same thing. I find myself pulling for Boston to be honest. I like Michael Ryder and I like Tim Thomas. I've always hated the Bruins, but I do respect what they're doing right now. I honestly didn't think they stood a chance versus Vancouver. Vancouver squeaked out two wins and are lucky they aren't down in this series 3-1 or worse.

Let's have another Stanley Cup for the Eastern Conference. Just sick of all the hype about Western teams being stronger. I can't get excited for Vancouver as I'm in Ontario and they're at the other side of the country. I don't hate them, but I don't have any interest. Seeing Boston win the cup means Montreal isn't far off. Montreal was the toughest test for Bruins these playoffs.

Carey Price was right when he said "We beat any other team we would've played except for Boston". Tampa would have been a test, for sure, but Habs would've outworked them. Habs were 2-0 vs Nucks as well.

You honestly listen to Mike Milbury? Here's some reading from "McCown's Law: The 100 Greatest Hockey Arguments" on Mad Mike Milbury.

Here's how he destroyed the Islanders.

"January 23, 1996: Milbury trades goaltender Damian Rhodes and defenceman Wade Redden to Ottawa for goaltender Don Beaupre, forward Martin Straka and defenceman Bryan Berard. Not a bad deal for Mike, except he couldn't stop there. Berard was traded to Toronto for Felix Potvin in what amounted to the exchange of an elite defenceman for an average goaltender. Straka was claimed off waivers two months later by Florida after playing just 22 games for the Islanders. Whoops>

November 27, 1996: Islanders trade Darius Kasparaitis and Andreas Johansson to the Penguins for Bryan Smolinski. Kasparaitis was the best player in the deal. Mike loses again.

February 6, 1998: Milbury trades defenceman Bryan McCabe, centre Todd Bertuzzi, and a third-round draft pick to Vancouver for Trevor Linden. Linden spent less than two years on Long Island and never had 20 goals in a season again in his career...

May 39, 1998: Milbury trades forward Jean-Pierre Dumont to the Chicago Blackhawks for centre Dmitri Nabokov. Awful. Nabokov played 55 career NHL games.

March 9, 1999: Milbury trades defenceman Scott Lachance to Montreal for a third round choice in the 1999 entry draft (forward Mattias Weinhandl). Weinhandl had a 6 goal season and was eventually put on waivers.

March 21, 1999: Milbury trades goaltender Tommy Salo to Edmonton for forward Mats Lindgren and an eighth-round pick (Radek Martinek) in 1999. Salo was the Oilers' starting goaltender for five full seasons...

June 21, 1999: Milbury trades forward Zigmund Palffy, forward Brian Smolinski and goalie Marcel Cousineau to the LA Kings for center Olli Jokinen, forward Josh Green, and defenceman Mathieu Biron and the Kings' first pick (Taylor Pyatt) in the 1999 entry draft. Not a bad deal, but Jokinen, Green, Biron, and Pyatt were all gone from Long Island by the start of the 2001-02 season.

June 24, 2000: Milbury trades defenceman Eric Brewer, forward Josh Green, and a second-round selection (Brad Winchester) in 2000 to the Edmonton Oilers for Roman Hamrlik. Mamrlik for Brewer would have been a push.

June 24, 2000: Islanders trade goaltender Roberto Luongo and forward Olli Jokinen to the Florida Panthers for forwards Oleg Kvasha and Mark Parrish. Getting one of those guys would have been a steal for Florida. But both?

June 23, 2001: Milbury trades defenceman Zdeno Chara, forward Bill Muckalt and the second-overal pick in the 2001 draft (Jason Spezza) for Alexei Yashin...

June 24, 2001: Milbury trades forwards Tim Connolly and Taylor Pyatt to Buffalo for Michael Peca. A decent deal, but he still overpaid, considering that the Sabres had to trade Peca, who was in a contract holdout.

March 11, 2003: Milbury trades forward Brad Isbister and forward prospect Raffi Torres to the Edmonton Oilers for defenceman Janne Niinimaa and a 2003 second round pick (Evgeni Tunik)...

March 9, 2006: Milbury trades defenceman Brad Lukowich to New Jersey for a third-round pick in 2006. The destruction was complete: 13 trades that got rid of 15 quality NHL players."

The Islanders could be hoisting the cup right now. So I wouldn't bother taking ANYTHING Mike Milbury has to say even with a grain of salt. That would be too generous. The guy's a complete moron.

Wow you gotta give Marchand credit. He managed to grow a beard that is more annoying than Lapierre's. It's like that beard they used in Team America World Police to disguise the main character.

I really, really hope TSN outbids CBC when the current contract is up. I think I'm starting to be allergic to Don Cherry.
