"...Without injured Sean Avery in the building to get under the Islanders' skin, Rangers enforcer Colton Orr and Avery wannabe Ryan Hollweg did their best to stir things up. Orr bested Islanders heavyweight Chris Simon in a second-period bout, and during a first-period scrum in front of the benches, Hollweg apparently threatened to go after the 15-stitch cut on the left cheek that Islanders defender Radek Martinek suffered the previous night against Ottawa.
'He came and said he would take my stitches out,' Martinek said. 'It was stupid.' He said Hollweg managed to get a glove on the wounded area but did no damage.
Asked if he'd experienced anything like that with another player, Martinek said, 'Never, never. He could show a little respect, but he didn't. I cannot respect him.'..."
...Avery wannabe? Is this guy Logan kidding me? Because Hollweg says a few things to Martinek all of a sudden he's an Avery wannabe. Hey, Logan does that make Chris Simon a Marty McSorley wannabe? Stupid Islander homer.
...I said this in an earlier post when Avery was getting dumped on. When did hockey players become so sensitive? Oh no, Hollweg said he's going to take my stitches out. Didn't Matinek see the movie Youngblood? "You don't want stitches in Thunder Bay" or Madison Square Garden.
