The 2010 NHL Awards

The NHL Awards were tonight and I was super excited as always to see them. Of course in the middle of summer I am always excited to see anything hockey related. The awards were once again held in Las Vegas. The NHL tried to add a bit of flavor this year with a comedian host, a few bands and various entertainers as presenters. Some were okay, some were just FAILs.

1. Fuck Jay Mohr.

Seriously, who hired this asshole? He's said on several occasions that he didn't like hockey.
One jack ass comment from Fox Sports:

Hockey sucks too. I can’t root for a guy whose name on the back of his jersey has no vowels. I also don’t think a sport is legitimate if its inception depended on the weather.
Trying to be funny again...TRYING being the key word.
Another quote from an interview with Jets Insider:
I love the Yankees. I've never been into hockey and sadly I'm a Knicks fan.

More good times from when he was a columnist at SI:
I am frequently asked who my favorite teams are, and I always give the same response: "Yankees, Knicks, Jets and screw hockey."

Screw hockey? Fuck you Jay Mohr, you are now on my Tiger Woods list of celebs that talk shit about hockey. You can read a full article on Puck Daddy about this:

2. Snoop D-O-double G.
Win! I love Snoop even if he IS a bit of a whore lately. And hey, at least it wasn't Chakka Khan again.



3. And the award for "WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT" goes to....
Seriously? Cirque du Soliel, the Beatles version? Yeah, I know it's in Vegas, but so were Siegfried and Roy and nobody brought white tigers on stage. They couldn't even come up with some kind of hockey themed version of flipping and spinning?




4. Absolute epic win! The NHL should have more stuff like this and less bullshit comedians.


Okay, so let's get to some winners!

Martin St. Louis finally won the Lady Byng.



No surprise to see Ryan Miller take home the Vezina Award.



Tyler Myers took home the Calder Trophy after a great season in Buffalo.



Pavel Datsyuk won the Selke award. He should get an award for adorably slaughtering the English language. (is this REALLY the best picture I could find of him??)



What will losing seven teeth get you? Well if you are Duncan Keith, it will get you a Stanley Cup and the Norris Trophy.



Jose Theodore emotionally accepted the Masterton award. Almost a year ago to the day Jose's son was born prematurely. He later died of respiratory complications due to being born premature. Jose set up the charity "Saves for Kids" to benefit the NICU where he was treated.



Saving the best for last, Henrik Sedin took home the Hart Trophy!


Dave Tippet won the Jack Adams Trophy, but I didn't have a pic.

Congrats to all the winners, including a few not listed.

If St. Louis was a true gentleman he'd stop scoring on the Thrashers. ;-P Ha ha!!
