NHL takes Vegas, Ovechkin and Theodore take awards

[Ed Note: We had a severe server reversal of fortune, so are re-posting this from Friday. We hope to be back to normal sometime this week. Thank you for your patience!]

By now I am sure that you’ve read all about the hub-bub’s and whats-it’s from last nights’ NHL Awards gala which took place at The Palms in Las Vegas. Unfortunately for us, Rock the Red was knee deep in moving to our own dedicated server (take THAT unwanted delays!) and couldn’t provide you with up-to-the minute reporting on Jamie Kennedy’s mispronuciations, Martin St. Louis’ appreciation of technology or Tyler Myers speech in which he channeled Sally “You like me, you really like me” Field. So here we go, as only RtR can do it… your 30 second recap in haiku.


Make the jump to see the Prose and Cons. See what we did there? No?
