- A two game suspension was handed down to James Wisniewski today for his oral sex gesture to Sean Avery. I figured they'd suspend him, but 2 games? Nick Boynton only received a one game suspension for a THROAT SLASH gesture. I guess society is really more afraid of sex than they are violence.
- Niklas Hjalmarsson received a 2 game suspension for his hit on Jason Pominville. I could go either way on this one. I don't believe there was an intent to injure and a case could be made tha Pominville put himself in a compromised position. However, the league needs to send a message to players that they need to be more aware when they are checking players to avoid more injuries.
