Newsday reports that former player, general manager, and drooling idiot (ok, he's still that) Mike Milbury will replace the equally cognitively challenged Brett Hull in the NBC studio for NHL telecasts this upcoming season.
Milbury, whose main claims to hockey fame are whacking a fan with his own shoe and making obscenely stupid trades, will join Pierre McGuire as part of his effort to pursue, as he put it, "things I'm much more passionate about than ticket sales."
Given that he also said that, "the first thing is, you only have to work 25 days out of the year...It's kind of like stealing money," one can only think that what he's passionate about is mailing in a few weekends a year and getting paid for it.
At least he can't do the damage to a major television network (given how many actually watch) that he did to hockey front offices. As he once famously stated about an agent, “It's too bad he lives in the city. He's depriving some small village of a pretty good idiot.”
Mike would know.
If there is one consoldation, perhaps he'll do this to Pierre McGuire when McGuire waxes rhapsodic once too often about Sidney Crosby...
