UPDATE: Penguins GM Ray Shero responded to Milbury's comments to ESPN.com "If it was an attempt at comedy, it falls real short."
"It’s fine to have an opinion on players but when you’re making light of concussions, that’s not right,” said Shero. "I’ve gone through this with my own kid (who had a concussion), obviously we’ve gone through it as a team with Sidney Crosby and saw what it took for him to battle back from it over the past year, there’s nothing funny about post-concussion syndrome. I don’t think it would have been very funny had he made fun of [concussed Flyers captain] Chris Pronger in that light. There’s nothing funny about [former Flyers captain] Keith Primeauhaving to retire from it. This is an issue that is at the forefront of our league right now and to make light of these concussions is a real lame attempt at humor. He should know better than this.’’
Shero responding to comments that Sid is a "goody two shoes": "I’m not sure what he’s implying there, Sidney Crosby is a fierce competitor, that’s what makes him great, that’s what makes him a great captain. It’s no different than a Peter Forsberg, they’re fierce competitors and they play to win the game."
UPDATE: Mike Milbury has apologized for his comments releasing a statement:
"I reached out to David Morehouse and the Penguins about the comments I made yesterday on Philadelphia radio. In hindsight, I realize what I said was inappropriate and wrong, and I want to apologize to the Penguins organization and their fans."
Sidney Crosby responds to Milbury's comments, says it's probably for ratings
Coach Bylsma responds to Milbury's "skirt" comment
What a joke Mike Milbury is. He's currently an analyst for NBC Sports and part of their NHL coverage and did an interview with a radio station in Philly on Monday ripping on Sidney Crosby and Coach Dan Bylsma.
Milbury's comments on Crosby: “Little goody two shoes [Crosby] goes into the corner and gives a shot to Schenn. Schenn was late to the party, he should have turned around and drilled him right away, but I guess better late than never,” Milbury said. “So you know, Crosby gets cross-checked, big whoop. He said after he came back from his 35th concussion, ‘I’m not going to do this anymore, I’m not going to get into this scrums, I’m going to stay away from that stuff.’ He couldn’t help himself because there’s a little punk in Crosby. He’s not the perfect gentleman. He’s not the sweet kid you see in interviews with his hat pulled down over his eyes. I’d say screw him, hit him,” he said.
Milbury's comments about Coach Bylsma and the 3rd period argument with Flyers coach Peter Laviolette: “It’s not totally uncommon,” Milbury said of Laviolette’s behavior at the end of the game. “I can remember being on such a perch, or at least trying to climb over the boards to get at somebody to make a point. And I thought Dan Bylsma should have taken off his skirt and gone over there,” he said.
