Disclaimer: This post is very half-assed

Next week needs to be here, like, yesterday. Not only will I be finished with school for the year, but there will FINALLY be some hockey related content on TV (I am already so sick of soccer, who’s with me? *crickets*).

The always amusing NHL Awards are on June 23, while the sometimes equally as amusing NHL Draft takes place on the 25-26th. The NHL Awards have always been one of my favorite parts of summer. Granted, they used to be a lot better, before Gary tried to screw them up. He moved them from Toronto to the hockey hotbed of….wait for it….Las Vegas, Nevada. The ridiculous thing is — are the Awards even broadcast in the U.S.? I always watch them on CBC, so I’m honestly not sure. And even if they are, how many people in Vegas are going to sit down to watch them? 2, possibly — that is the correct answer. And seriously, how many Las Vegas residents are going to buy $300 tickets to the Awards?? UGH, anyyyyway.

Here are my (highly debatable) predictions for the winners of these prestigious awards.

    I’m going to skip the Masterton and Ted Lindsay Awards. I told ya, half-assed!

    Someone seriously better keep an eye on Pat Kane; can you imagine his reaction to losing money at a casino? Watch out, Las Vegas.
