Postgame shows are better when analysts nearly come to blows. On NBC Sports Tonight, Mike Milbury and Jeremy Roenick nearly came to blows over a hit that was placed on Pittsburgh Penguins player Kris Letang.
Milbury argued that hits like the one Eric Nystrom doled out need to be stopped. Roenick argued that Letang should learn how to take a hit. The discussion soon became less than civil and many thought the two would actually fight.
That would actually boost the network’s sagging ratings. Sometimes an in-studio fight can be a cure all.
