Milbury gives Connolly a backhander

Well, it seems Mike Milbury is not a fan of the Sabres' Tim Connolly.

Milbury, who was the Islanders' general manager when New York chose Connolly fifth overall in the 1999 entry draft, had this between-periods comment about the Sabres center Wednesday night.

"When he's not injured or acting like a self-centered little dink, he's a very good player," Milbury said during highlights on NESN.

The volume is low on this clip. Milbury's comments start at the 1:29 mark.
