Milbury and Roenick make a great pair

George Belbusti, Orange, Conn.

I don’t know if it was intentional or not, but NBC struck ‘gold’ when they signed Jeremy Roenick and Mike Milbury as hockey analysts.

It appears Roenick is the good cop to Milbury’s bad cop.

Milbury seems to be giving all the negative comments (especially about Team USA) and Roenick rebuts with something positive to say. Plus they both have no qualms stating that they didn’t agree with what the other had to say.

The friction between the two of them makes it more interesting than the usual blather that goes on between periods.

Roenick does need some polishing due to occasional stammering, but I would love to see Milbury and J.R. paired up after the Olympics and beyond.
