“If I’m a Rangers fan I expect be disappointed…neither has proven worthy of the contract or responsibility.” M. Milbury on Nash & E. Staal

Whenever the New York Rangers’ are broadcast on NBC, fans expect the usual annoyances. But it’s time for Mike Milbury to stop the trolling.

The New York Rangers will take on the Pittsburgh Penguins today in what is sure to be an intense affair.
A 12:30PM Sunday hockey game usually means it’s “Hockey Day In America”, and for Rangers’ fans that also means having to stomach NBC broadcaster, Mike Milbury.
The quirky broadcast is always full of a number of cliche and predictable punch lines, usually at the Rangers’ expense.
Milbury is famous in New York, not for his hockey knowledge, but for his constant trolling of the Blueshirt faithful. Today’s tweet was completely unfounded.
First off, Rick Nash has just returned from his injury and looked strong against the Detriot Red Wings. Eric Staal has been in New York for a grand total of a week and a half.
You know what Mike? Maybe you should keep your trap shut when it comes to the Rangers.
Do us all that favor.
