Penguins Update: Quote of the Week

In the wake of the Penguins-Flyers game-ending brawl on Sunday—which featured a heated verbal exchange between Philly coach Peter Laviolette and black-and-gold assistant Tony Granato—NBC Hockey analyst Mike Milbury criticized Pens skipper Dan Bylsma for not getting involved.

“I thought Dan Bylsma should have taken off his skirt and gone over there,” Milbury huffed.

Bylsma’s response was an all-time classic.

“I wasn’t wearing a skirt,” he wryly noted. “It was a blue suit.”

    Danny and the coaches should all wear a blue Kilt with a picture of Mike Mil–I mean Dinglebury on their ass. Heck, Bylsma could probably talk JR into wearing one too.

    Little Rhody finally has a connection to the Penguins organization with the official 2 way signing of local yokel Cody Wild with the coolest name in hockey and an even cooler swagger for any one who has met the young man, all his friends speak highly of him and know he’s the quiet carry the big stick o—fensive defense man, from Providence College otherwise known as “Eaton Street School” ! We wish him much success and longevity with the Pens ………Letang and Wild …..same line…..fa ged abod- it!……unstoppable!

    Mike Milbury, old school, gritty, grinder,homer and comical…..what more could you ask from a former player who now “colors” the events surrounding the very same penguins that he believes, have a good shot at winning it all, as a pens fan you gotta love it, because if the B’s and the Pens don’t get great goal tending it could very well be one and done!

    Almost as good as Badger Bobs response back in 91 when he was asked how he felt about MIke Milbury calling him the “professor of goonism” his simple one word response was ……….”confused” Good stuff.
