NHL Awards Open Thread

Not that it will matter, but why the hell is Adrian Fenty letting 134 hockey writers determine whether or not Alex Ovechkin is worthy of a key to the city? It's called home rule, Mister Mayor. Look into it.

Anyway, here's your open thread to discuss any and everything related to tonight's NHL Awards show. Go nuts.

"Your awards. Give them to me. All of them."

That is damn near the tux/vest/tie combo i have my groomsmen wearing in my wedding this summer.

i wonder if this means OV is planning on attending now. i KNEW those untold hours of hanging out in front of his house inviting him over to dinner to welcome him to Arlington were not for naught!

Congrats JP for the "Bloggie"

"More Breakdowns Than Britney Spears" Award- Japers' Rink takes the crown for their pure enjoyment of breaking down the Washington Capitals. There are more numbers being thrown around here than a college frat party. A must-read for stat heads.

And a premature Congrats to Ovechkin for the clean sweep to come tonight.

Quick: Someone tell Joe Finley that whatever AO is wearing, it's NOT a mascot outfit.

Rousing conversation about green tea on Coronation Street, anyone? WTF?

Oh... that's better.

Yea I noticed that too. Maybe it's a sign of good things to come.

Thanks, Breed. Wonder what post eliminated me from "Classiest Blog" contention. Could it have been this one? Or this one? Oh well - at least the award stayed local.

JP- i was thinking it might be the 2 girls 1 cup post. :)

i work late thursdays so i got home just in time to catch the calder announcement. sorry i missed ovie's (first) award for the night! i'm of the opinion that pearson > hart, so good on him. and i totally didn't expect gabby to win, so double good on him! YAY!

Typical NHL awards show - they get worse every year, to the point of being downright awkward. And thanks, Versus, for cutting off the best part - the red carpet walks - and giving us Coronation Tea instead. Sheeze.

But YEAH to Coach and Alex!!!
