Former National Hockey League general manager Mike Milbury is no stranger to controversy, but these comments seemed over the top even by his usual standards.
On Tuesday night during an NBC broadcast Milbury was going over highlights from the match up between the Minnesota Wild and San Jose Sharks. It was at that point that one particular highlight showed Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk making a major misplay on the puck behind his net.
That prompted a rant from Milbury that ended with hin implying that both Devan Dubnyk, as well as other goaltenders were mentally retarded.
"I would say 50% of the time they get confused, we all know they're somewhat handicapped mentally anyway."
I have to admit I chuckled when Milbury said it initially, although Dubnyk may not find it as amusing as we did.
