    PTM rants about the poor comedy and viewability of the NHL Awards show.

    Suggests that fans shoot 5-10 minutes of (hockey) "standup", post it to YouTube and then there's a vote off of who to select to be on the show.


    Also suggests improving the musical groups.


    (I admit that I fast forwarded through a lot as I went off and watched something else and then "caught up" to live. Especially after the one award I had some interest in was presented.)

    This annual trainwreck is unfixable, a mercy killing is in order.

    Pretty much this. I doubt that turning it into amateur hour would improve anything.

    That is an awful idea. I do agree that it was pretty weak. But, that can be fixed by hiring 'comedians' that actually have a clue about the league. Not these guys that 'like hockey' so think they can host an NHL Awards show because they watch 4 hockey games a year.
