The CBC should be ashamed of themselves for having morons like Milbury and Stock on there ranting and whining about the Habs when the Habs are a Canadian team and CBC is a Canadian network. First of all, neither of them have a clue about hockey. Stock was a useless hockey player and Milbury is the worst GM in sports history....so obviously neither of them have a clue about the game of hockey. They are nothing more than Boston Bruin Homers!!! The bashing and rotten things they were saying about the Habs for no reason is absured.

CBC better fix this kind of crap or they are going to lose millions of watchers.

Yeah, how quickly they forget Laraque following Lucic around the ice, and Lucic REFUSING to go. Nope, that's not cowardly, that's playing it smart!

So, in bizarro land, Lapierre has to fight Thornton (code does not apply for a Bruins' heavyweight), and PK has to fight anyone in an opposing jersey, no matter what. Why would someone with PK's skill put himself out of the game for 5 minutes fighting a 4th liner?

Did Larry Robinson have to fight every time he hit somebody cleanly? What about Scott Stevens? These clowns and their bias/hate towards the Habs shouldn't be covering Habs' games.

Mike Millburry promoting violence

Thanks for posting the link. I rarely write to these organizations but I decided to do so this time. I kept the complaint to Milbury's advocating violence against two opposing players & brought up the fact CBC learned nothing from the Bertuzzi-Moore incident. And I let them know they lost a viewer.

Where can i find the rant on CBC.ca
wasnt it on after the 2nd or the 1st?

Found it, just have to watch the full game and fast forward to about 55 mins

Ok so Milbury wasn't talking about Lapierre... Ok right Milburry, so Lucic should of been hacked in the knees by Laraque right?

On Subban, why should anyone have to fight after a clean hit? ****ing idiots, punished stock? Punish subban for a clean hit? Wow idiots talking hockey.

For some reason CBC has decided that having Don Cherry isn't enough, they need a full-time trio of Bruins loving Habs haters. I'm sure Leafs fans love it but as a Habs fan I don't watch CBC pretty much at all any more. I try sometimes, but the combination of bias and ignorance is just repugnant.

Anyone not find these guys total clowns? HNIC could and should be cashing in on the Habs success, but instead they hire loudmouths who pretty much cheer on every cheap shot in the league, but have no tolerance for clean hits if they're made by a Hab.

You have to understand them , they have years of frustration losing to the Habs

Oh man, that was a joke. Listening to them sit there and whine about the Habs for a full 5 minutes. I'm tired of seeing Milbury with his gigantic head and stupid haircut. How is he not working for NESN? He would fit right in.

Also, did Milbury call Lapierre a frog? I could have sworn I heard him say that...

You can always just voice your opinions in the CBC story comments section below the game write-ups. That's what most do.. You know they read it there because someone is moderating.

edit: sort comments by agreed to get the Milbury hate....

I don't even really mind PJ Stock. He's not bad, sometimes has some good insight, sometimes can be a bit funny, and is not meant to be the main guy there.

Millbury is clearly an idiot, and even PJ at one point was a bit surprised by what Mike said. Ron had the brains to stay out of it and look appropriately stunned.

All-in-all it made me laugh, but CBC should be taking note; we're not laughing WITH them, we're laughing at YOU for picking such an idiot to do MONTREAL commentary. I can think of about 100 ex coaches, GM's and players who would all do a better job.

They even had Guy Carbonneau going there for a while, can't fathom why they wouldn't retain his services, if only for Habs broadcasts.

I like having ex-Bruins witness the Bruins lose to the Habs. I'd dislike it if the Habs let me down and lost, but they rarely do when they face the black and yellow. Bruins partisans protest that it's black and gold but they should have their eyes examined.

They have our number, but they never call...

I think it's the other way around. We're living rent free right between their ears.

"The tough guy from Boston"....Bob Cole is so embarrassing....he obviously thought Krejci was Shawn Thorton.
Whos got the power play Bob?I guess we will "figure it out when we come back from the break".No need....the entire country knows who has the power play except you!
Heres a hint....it might be the guy who just tripped someone that your camera is fixed on....you know,the guy skating to the penalty box.
Pathetic.
Ineptitude and bias....a lethal combination...good job CBC.

WHY didn't Brad May say that to Lucic against Laraque? It's probably because he doesn't get many segments on CBC or any other network shows. WTH are these guy thinking... Wasn't it a clean hit? Are we supposed to fight after every clean bodycheck, because it was a big hit? I don't see anyone getting all flustered on the clean hit by Boychuk on Pouliot? BOYCHUK is a 26 with 76 NHL (20 from this year), it's only his sophmore year! Why is no one calling for his head?

Why aren't they mad at Marchand for trying to figure skate around guys. Marchard had a head of steam, PK had no choice but to hit him, if he doesn't hit him, Marchand can drive the net. Unfortunately the Montreal Canadiens have some big forwards (contrary to popular belief), one named Max Pacioretty. Maybe if it was Gionta, he would of been able to see PK behind, but not Max, build like a house! and Subban like a bulldozer!

They have our number Brad? Really Brad? What does mean Brad? What does they having our number mean to YOU Brad? Because I don't think Brad that we both understand who has whos number Brad. Brad? Brad! Where you going Brad?! I was just, no I wasn't. Bye Brad.

Every week, it seems, you guys come on here to complain about what Don Cherry/CBC panel has said, especially when it is geared towards the Montreal Canadiens.

May I ask why you tune in, even after you know what is coming your way?

If you don't like it, stop watching the damn broadcast. When you guys write a letter to them to complain, you do know that they stop reading at; "I watched your show and...". That's it. They now know, you've watched the show and given them ratings.

Ratings = money, and since you tune in to watch it, they're getting money and they won't change the product.

Want change? Stop watching. Simple as that.

I like Cherry most of the time and same with Stock. I usually watch hockey on CBC and you get used to the less professional things like confusing Habs players although we could say who is who and they mostly broadcast Canadiens games...but last night was over the top.. didn't appreciate the PK bashing at all the kid rocks a Carcillo who is a useless goon and then he gets **** for not fighting him? He's our PP specialist the last thing we need is a shoulder injury or something to PK.. than again tonight just a regular head down, open ice hit and he has to fight because of it? How many teams important players you see fighting? Especially since one of our PP QB's are already out for the season... they just ignored logic last night it seemed..

They don't call cause they can't read. Maybe Brad May will tell them what's written down only problem is he needs someone to move his finger for him.

Mike Millburry promoting violence

---

To whomever runs Hockey Night in Canada:

I've never understood why my taxes, as a Canadian, payed for the salary of an American commentator, during CBC's Hockey Night in Canada, considering he is, unanimously (ask TSN, THN, ESPN, RDS and whoever else) the worst GM in the HISTORY of the NHL.... But I've learned to let it go.

However, I am absolutely shocked that CBC would allow Mad Mike to publicly say during yesterday's 1st intermission between the Habs and the Bruins, without censorship, that if he were coach, he would ask one of his players to pay the price and go after guys like Subban and Lapierre with a premeditated assault. He repeated "premeditated" twice, a word that was very hard for him to pronounce, but he still implied that if Claude Julien was a good coach, he would ask one of his guys to "not care about the consequences, just go injure one of them".

Do you remember the Bertuzzi incident? Hockey Night in Canada, as far as I can remember (early 80s), has always seemed like a family oriented show. Perhaps I've missed the R-rated warning, but for someone on a publicly funded station to call out, without question, a premeditated assault against someone else, to "teach them a lesson and send a message" (actual quote from last night), is shocking and flat out disturbing.

The fact is, CBC's main 2 analysts are:
- Worst GM in NHL's long history, by FAR
- A guy who barely made it as a 4th liner and never had any success at any level

Who runs Hockey Night in Canada? Can I apply for the job? Because obviously, you don't have to be very talented or intelligent to get the job... And I won't even get started on Don Cherry, the Glen Beck of sports... btw, in case you are as dumb as your 3 stooges (Cherry, Millburry and Stock), this was not a compliment by any means...
Your mail was awesome until i started reading the bold part.
those aren't facts those in bullets.

and the insults at the ends might gets you the job your looking for ^^

Oh yeah...

I watched it and couldn't believe the CRAP from Milbury's mouth.

I don't need Hab cheerleading, but the level of Hab bashing and Bruin stroking was f***ing revolting.

Milbury went waay overboard.

But let's face it... that is the new era of shock jock radio and TV (see Fox news)

It is in fact one of the reasons why Larry King is retiring. The old guy publicly stated that he wants no part of being a MOUTHY host as seems to be required nowadays.

Oh yes...

Ron Maclean is a total ***** for sitting there with his mouth shut.

That's all fine and dandy.... except as Canadians every single one of owns the CBC. So it's natural to tune in, since it's our tax dollars and all.
