JJ’s Three Cheers: 10/13/10

Today’s three cheers (despite slim pickins, what with only two games last night and all) recognizing those who deserve a nip for their performances of a night ago:

***Cheers to Detroit’s Johan Franzen, who opened the scoring in last night’s renewal of the Avalanche/Red Wings rivalry and later notched a second goal, as the Wings earned a point in the standings, despite blowing a two-goal lead, in falling to the Avs in a shootout. Franzen now has three goals and four points on the young season for Detroit (2-0-1).

James Wisniewski Suspended Two Games

via Darren Dreger tweet,

2 games for Wisniewski

added 7:05pm,

TORONTO (October 12, 2010)—New York Islanders defenseman James Wisniewski has been suspended for two games and will forfeit $79,268.30 in salary for directing an inappropriate gesture toward New York Rangers player Sean Avery during NHL game #28 on October 11. The incident occurred during a stoppage of play in the first period.

Wisniewski, who was suspended for eight games on March 17, 2010, is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Accordingly, he forfeits his salary based on the number of games in the season (82), rather than the number of days (186). The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

Wisniewski will miss the Islanders’ next two games—Oct. 13 at Washington and Oct. 15 at Pittsburgh. He is eligible to return Oct. 16 against Colorado.

JJ’s Three Cheers: 10/12/10

Today’s three cheers, saluting those who deserve as much for their performances yesterday:

***Cheers to Vancouver’s Roberto Luongo, whose 41 saves thwarted the efforts of his former club, the Florida Panthers en route to the first win of the season for the Canucks. Luongo’s .973 save percentage through his club’s first two games is hardly anything to scoff at and his quick start is a great sign for a Canucks team with extremely high hopes for the season. As for Florida, 42 shots on goal are great but three goals through two games won’t get the job done and that sort of paltry offensive production could be exactly what keeps the Panthers from succeeding this season. Tomas Vokoun can only keep opponents at bay to a certain extent.

The Bolts Beat, 10/12/10: Lightning Home Opener, Road Trip Ahead, Devils Dilemmas, Wisniewski & More

In the latest episode of The Bolts Beat, Jon, Mike and Mark recap the Lightning’s successful home opener and preview their road trip ahead. The boys also discuss the current (disasterous) state of the New Jersey Devils and the James Wisniewski/Sean Avery incident (how about that? “Sean Avery” and “incident” in the same sentence? Shocker…) Finally, JJ blows his top (again) in the latest installment of “What the Hell Was THAT?”

What Will Bettman Do?

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

So how are Gary Bettman and his NHL hockey operations personnel going to explain to children what James Wisniewski mouthed and gestured at Sean Avery on the ice during the first period of this afternoon’s match at the Coliseum?

Wisniewski repeatedly made signals unmistakably relating to oral sex with 5:09 remaining in the first period of today’s 6-4 Islanders’ victory over the Rangers at the Coliseum after Avery drove to the net and semi-sprayed Rick DiPietro.

JJ’s Three Cheers: 10/10/10

Today’s three cheers for those who deserve as much from their performances of a night ago:

***Cheers to Derek Stepan of the New York Rangers, who burst onto the NHL scene last night with a hat trick in his first career game. Dallas’ Fabian Brunnstrom was the last player to manage three goals in his NHL debut and Stepan became the fourth player in league history to accomplish the feat. That it came against the reigning Vezina Trophy winner in Buffalo’s Ryan Miller, too, makes the performance that much more impressive. If Stepan’s contributions in the early-going are any indicator, New York will fare far better than some of us may have predicted.
