2011 NHL Awards - Live Open Thread


7pm ET - Versus - CBC - NHLN

Like the Pantherless NHL All-Star Game of several months ago, don't expect to see any local faces onstage, and probably not in the crowd as well. Hope you've got enough wine on hand considering the abundance of cheese we'll be subjected to this evening.

Bob Sugar hosts a star-studded gala event headlined by the previously flexible person pictured here - and whose name I haven't heard since late in elementary school - but this is the NHL after all; presumably such an invite paves the way for an appearance by the guy with the four-cylinder Porsche in Sixteen Candles next June. Enjoy.
