Former New York Islanders G.M. and Coach now turned broadcaster Mike Milbury struggled on the call of the biggest game to date.

New York Islanders fans can never pass on an opportunity to throw shade at Mike Milbury. Islanders fans despise Milbury for his 11 years with the team. Over his tenure, he helped derail the team with his ludicrous trades.

Now, Milbury works for NBC Sports. He used to be in the studio but now he’s actually in the booth so we’re unfortunately objectified to his nonsense on a more regular basis.

Last night, in the biggest game of the year to date he was paired with the legend, Doc Emrick. Milbury really struggled badly on the call.

He showed zero life and his passion for the game was in question:

Milbury not knowing how the three stars worked was laugh out loud funny. If anything Milbury being on National TV should be an inspiration.

Never give up on your dreams kids. If Mike Milbury can be a network broadcaster and run an organization for over a decade you can do anything you set your mind to.

Can’t wait to get Brendan Burke and Butch Goring back, the national broadcasts are killing me.
