Throughout Milbury's tenure as Islanders GM, fans chanted "Mike Must Go" when the team performed badly.

In an appearance on Mike and the Mad Dog, Wang did not challenge a suggestion from the hosts that he "fired" Milbury. Milbury resigned from his Senior VP job in May of 2007. He said that he missed making hockey-related decisions and would be open to a hockey operations job in another organization.[1] Charles B.
