Does anyone actually think Millbury knows wtf he's talking about? No one should listen to a guy who killed a team.

I switched to the NESN feed on Game Center Live. I can't believe I'm typing this but it's so much better than NBCSN.

I liked the part about Milbury giving himself credit for drafting Chara then neglecting to mention he traded him in one of the worst trades in history.

Seriously. The fact they have Milbury even speaking between intermissions is a crime.

But to put him as a color guy during a Bruins game? Are you kidding me?

Go **** yourself, Keith Jones.

I'm disappointed in JR. I thought he'd have enough character to call out homerism on air.

That too! Man I want the Lightning to win both these back to back games even more now, just to shove it in their (Milbury/Jones) collective faces.*



* - Note that I would not actually do that, because I value both my shoes and my face.

NESN is one of the few broadcasts I usually enjoy listening to. Every now and then Edwards goes over the top but he calls a good game and Brickley is great. Didn't even know this game was on NBCSN.

Hes so dumb. At least Jack Edwards makes it exciting and entertaining.

We've been surviving so far. Now we have to take advantage of this opportunity.

Riddle me this: Milbury is a terrible GM, agreed?

Note that he signed Evgeny Namestinkov (Vlad's dad) in 1997.

I'm looking at Milbury's record now, and he's actually not a bad GM when it comes to signing guys, but he was absolutely atrocious when it came to trades.

Here's a gem of his that goes overlooked (fortunately for him)

5/30/1998 NYI trades JP Dumont (Milbury's first draft pick as Islanders GM) and a 5th round pick for Dmitri Nabokov.
