|Jay Mohr is about as funny as his hairline|
The NHL always seems to disappoint when it comes to the NHL Awards. The NHL looks pretty low rate hiring a guy who has publicly announced he doesn't even like hockey to host their end of the year awards gala... for a second straight year. We wish Brendan Shanahan would take a look at the NHL Awards and give them a makeover like the All-Star Game because there is potential to make it a really fun night for the fans (other than the ones participating in a Dirty Dangle Drinking Game). Chaka Khan was bad, Jay Mohr is bad - learn from your mistakes. Here are some ideas for potential hosts:
- Charlie Sheen - other than banging porn stars, what else is he doing? He might provide some good one liners about Gary Bettman and call Alex Ovechkin a troll
- Vince Vaughn - we wonder if he would try and make Luongo's head bleed in person. This swinger would be a great host and he loves hockey so he might do it for free
- Cuba Gooding Jr. - big hockey fan and loves the Kings. Would be fun to have him host and have him yell at Brad Richards all night "show me the money!"
- Jeff Foxworthy - with Nashville starting to look like a hockey market, the white trash comedy of Foxworthy will help get viewers in the South to watch
- Dave Chappelle - Was a comedy god before he took off to live in Africa for months. Would be worth hearing him say "I'm Jarome Iginla bitch"
- Kevin Smith - he is a huge hockey fan and loves the New Jersey Devils. He if can some how turn the awards into anything like Clerks it will be gold.
- Russell Peters - most of his act is making fun of brown people. Would be interesting to see how he ties it in with hockey
- Carrie Underwood, Hilary Duff, and Willa Ford - They can co-host it and talk about how they love the name Mike.
- Paul "BizNasty2point0" Bissonnette - follow his twitter, enough said.
- Ilya Bryzgalov - his squeaky voice and jokes about Russia not being as cold as Canada would be non stop laughs
- Sidney Crosby - one of the biggest stars in the NHL, although there is the chance he could get confused and forget his lines
- Jeremy Roenick - always a funny guy off the ice, but there is a risk he might rip on too many players in the audience and Chris Pronger high sticks him in the face.
- Gary Roberts and Scott Stevens - these guys would be so intense that they scare the shit out of everyone. Versus would make it an R rated broadcast.
