2011 NHL Awards Spectacular



While the NHL won’t be giving any actual hardware away until Wednesday in Las Vegas, we feel there’s no need to make the good people wait any longer for regular season glory.  It’s time for the 2011 The Sports Bank NHL Awards Spectacular.  The three finalists for each award have already been announced, and will be on hand in Las Vegas for the announcement during the live show, hosted by Jay Mohr.  Who deserves each award?  Find out after the jump.

Good day sports fans!  On Wednesday night, the NHL gathered all its greatest goal getters, stingiest shot stoppers, and dynamic defenseman in Las Vegas for the annual awards show.  Although the action on the stage wasn’t that great (Jay Mohr doing his same three impressions over and over again does not make entertaining television), the real stars of the show were the players and their achievements of the past season.

Some awards I agree with, others I feel the voters, were wrong.  So to get a true sense of the highlights of the past year, I’ve decided to properly hand out the awards, all by myself.  Do I think that highly of myself? Perhaps, but I feel that you, the fan, deserve to know the truth.  And I will have no problem shouting it out.  Please save your applause for the end, when all our recipients have been announced.  Thank you, merci.
