Post’s Brooks Unamused By Mike Milbury’s Archie Bunker Tribute Act

Vancouver is a win away from hoisting their first Stanley Cup, also the first such title for the Canucks’ Henrik and Daniel Sendin.  Noting that said triumph would give the Sendins “one more Stanley Cup ring apiece than Mike Milbury & Don Cherry earned in 28 years of combined NHL employment”, the New York Post’s Larry Brooks considers the Brothers’ limited offensive output in these finals insufficient justification for Milbury’s casual abuse.

They aren’t North American, after all, so they must be belittled. They don’t bite, they don’t stick their fingers in other people’s mouths, they don’t seek to decapitate their opponents and they don’t mouth off in the press.

So they are not men.

A year ago at the Olympics, there was Milbury — the guy who traded Roberto Luongo, a young Olli Jokinen and the chance to draft either Dany Heatley or Marian Gaborik for Rick DiPietro, Mark Parrish and Oleg Kvasha a year before trading Zdeno Chara and the right to draft Jason Spezza for Alexei Yashin — calling the Russian team “Eurotrash” following a gruesome performance against Canada.

So having a rough go of it against the Bruins, The Sedins are “Thelma and Louise,” according to Milbury. They are women.

If that is the case, we have a pretty good idea who personifies the white trash truck driver whose rig gets blown up.
