Mike Milbury criticized after saying women couldn’t ‘disrupt’ NHL players in bubble

Hockey analyst Mike Milbury is once again facing criticism for comments he made on air during “NHL on NBC.”

Milbury faced negative feedback for his take on Tuukka Rask earlier this month. Now, he’s under fire for comments he made about NHL bubble life. Speaking during the Islanders’ 4-0 win over the Capitals on Thursday night, Milbury said there weren’t women in the bubble to “distract” the players. His comments came after co-host John Forslund was talking about the enviornment of the bubble.

“If you think about it, it’s a terrific enviornment with regard to — if you enjoy playing and enjoy being with your teammates for long periods of time, it’s a perfect place,” Forslund said.

Milbury responded, “Not even any woman here to disrupt your concentration.”
