08:21 AM ET 02.28 | Mike Milbury has seemingly never been a fan of Alex Ovechkin's, and that doesn't look to change any time soon. [Wednesday night] saw Milbury trash Ovechkin's effort against the Philadelphia Flyers during the second intermission. Mom, Dad: Hide the kids. Among the highlights: * Ovechkin "failed" the superstar test "miserably" with "an awful display of hockey" and "should be ashamed of himself." ... * "Eight year olds don't do this in the offensive zone." ... * Ovechkin acted "like a baby" in trying to draw a penalty. "This is ridiculous embellishment. He should be embarrassed by this and so should his teammates. That is silly. Get up and act like a man, for god's sake."

Because we all know how good at talent evaluation Milbury is.

There was no bigger embarrassment in that telecast than Milbury. What a tool.

Does anybody really listen to Milbury when he talks anymore? I usually switch the channel when he comnes on and come back for the start of the next period.

I wouldn't argue that Ovi wasn't playing like a superstar last night but this was...never mind it was Milbury

Milbury kills OV every chance he gets so anything he states on air about the Caps in general should have a huge disclaimer across the screen as he speaks. Now it was a horrible horrible night for all the Caps not just OV. I would love to know what Ribeiro said to get the 10 min misconduct. Was it a Crash Davis moment where he called him a c...sucker? (My first reach on language there, how do mods handle it?) I would like to point out 2 nice performances last night: Gagne nice goal and Grubauer nice way to stand tall between the pipes.

I was half expecting it to get out of hand (add a couple more), the Flyers where definately pressing but he sure didn't come out like he was cold goalie off the bench denied Schenn of two great chances

Always been nothing short of an ****-clown!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but was it not Mike Milbury who was charged with assault and battery on a 12-year-old? And he's telling Ovie to act like a man?

Saw Grubauer on Saturday and he looked very good. Granted it was an AHL game, but he was probably the best player on the ice.

As for questionable language, it will get the ***** censor, but it can live on in a quote.

Hasn't this always been the case with Milbury?

This lackwit should've been fired out of a cannon years ago.

Who gives these blow heart jobs. Did little in the NHL as players and coaches now Cherry and Milbury are experts?

The charges were dropped due to lack of evidence if I recall, it was his son fighting I think but in the end Milbury is still a giant ****. I believe secretly he is trying to become the new Don Cherry but he'll never be half the man Cherry is (Threw up in my mouth as I typed that). Now if I may: Bluejackets at Blackhawks tomorrow night = hawks first loss. Yes in stating that I believe the Hawks will skate right by the Blues tonight in a tough game.

I'm not surprised a To***to fan knows nothing about heart.

But you should know a lot about blowing. :-)

When the kids were growing up and someone said something nasty about them, I'd tell them to consider the source. I'd ask them if they liked or respected the person and when they said no, I say then don't let it bother you. Considering the source, I'll bet Ovechkin isn't bothered by it at all.

I actually get a kick out of Cherry. At least I know it won't be a vanilla commentary
