Will Arnett doing fake Shanny was pretty funny. Definitely the funniest thing they did. Everything else was predictably lame and awkward.

"I'm the almighty Brendan Shanahan of the National Department of Ass-Kicking." :lol:

That skit was pretty funny but even parts of that just seemed forced and not funny. The whole show for a while now has just felt kind of awkward with people trying to be funny that just aren't.

That's pretty much all award shows in general. It was much more cheesy and bad growing up in the 90s and watching, but there wasn't social media to sh!t on it.

I thought the first two Shanny skits were funny, but things got a little old and awkward when they tried to do the same type of skit four times. I agree it was the funniest thing they did, but somebody producing the show has got to realize you can't do the same joke four times; I don't know how they thought they were going to get away with that.

What is the stupid Lady Byng even based on anymore? Henrique had 7 penalty minutes all year and he finishes 31st? The one fight he had was a result of Iginla being a baby who couldn't deal with being hit.

Yea, it has got to be the stupidest award given out in all of pro sports. It's on pace with the Most Improved award in Little League.
