JJ Guerrero of Canucks Hockey Blog brought (or paid for) a hot date, and ponied up the fun tickets for a new suit and tickets to attend last night's awards show.
Nice summary and photos of some clean shaven Stanley Cup Champion Carolina Hurricanes !!!!

One report I read said Wardo and Staal pillaged the media buffet table. If so, it kind of makes that Onion piece carry the ring of truth.
I watched a bit last night. Nice intimate party designed by Canadians for Canadians.
- Nameless Canadian band (what, no Bare Naked Ladies?)
- Nameless Canadian comic
- D-List Canadian celebs including Tom Cochrane of 1981 Lunatic Fringe fame ( I saw Red Rider twice in college) and some hottie from that show on the SF channel that has Lorne Greene and Michael Landon on a spaceship fighting robot cyborgs.
- No Kid Rock, Cuba Gooding or Nuke LaLoosh (thank God)
Roddy winning the Selke was a no-brainer. His ode to Lavvy was heartfelt and powerful. Lindy Ruff winning the Adams was kind of a downer, but Lindy kept that club fighting when lesser men would have made excuses and looked to bail.
I think Lavvy's gonna be Ok. He's got the important hardware.
