For anyone that watched the NHL Awards last night, wasn't that a massive failure? It was so bad that I had to turn the channel at times. I thought last year's was bad, this was worse. I can understand the NHL wanting to make it a big deal, but taking the players out of their element and adding fringe celebrities that may or may not care about hockey ruins the thing for the true hockey fan.
I would prefer a 30-60 minute show where we see all of the awards presented, great highlights from the season and some recaps and analysis by the commentators/host. You can still have it in Vegas, but you can put the event outside so it shows off the town (or whatever). I liked the red carpet idea outside the event though. I think that was a keeper. That and this were the only good things about the show last night!
