Mike Milbury is known for his controversial comments and attitude towards players in the NHL. Earlier this year Milbury implied that Minnesota Wild goaltender, Devan Dubnyk along with other goaltenders were mentally challenged.
“I would say 50% of the time they get confused, we all know they’re somewhat handicapped mentally anyway.”
Milbury also made comments about Joe Louis Arena where the Detriot Redwings have played since 1979 and who’re set to debut in their new arena next season, but before they leave “The Joe” Milbury once again had some choice words.
“They’re getting out of that dump they call ‘The Joe,’ which was a dump the day they opened it and it’ll be a dump the day they close it.”

He’s disgruntled many fans and players across the NHL and Nashville Predators defenseman, P.K. Subban is the latest victim to Milbury’s moronic comments.
He went on to call Subban a “clown” for dancing in pregame warm ups before game two against the St. Louis Blues, and stated that Predators head coach Peter Laviolette “needed to give him a rap on the head for his behavior.”
His recent comments about P.K. Subban during Thursday nights game at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh has a large portion of Predators fans calling for his head. Many fans are questioning his comments after Subban took several hits to the head from Penguins captain, Sindey Crosby. He told the audience, “Subban had it coming”

Here is the real question, If it were the other way around what would Mike Milbury have said? If Subban would have thrown Crosby’s head into the ice would his comments stay the same? Throughout the playoffs fans have quickly realized that Milbury has some serious issues with Subban and honestly, he seemed to enjoy watching P.K. get his head thrown to the ice.
Here’s what some of the fans thought of Milbury’s controversial comments during Thursday nights game.
"[Subban] had it coming."
You don't want to know what I said, after staring at my screen for a few seconds….

Mike Milbury, you are a piece of garbage. Subban had it coming? Please. Go on back to your hotel room and wait for Crosby to get there.
