That was awkward.

It wasn't... I mean it could've been so much worse.  The kid's funny, Hall's at least got some semblance of a personality.  

I feel like Scott's Totts has prepared me for this moment.

What did I miss?

Let's see.

- They started with a magician that 'turned Bettman into a kid'

- Fall Out Boy

- They brought out a B-level ventriloquist 

- They had Hall do a bit with the same kid from the magic trick, it was.. alright.  Hall looked uncomfortable.

- They spent 20 minutes talking about the school shootings in Florida (okay with this in principle, but it just came across like they were bringing it up for the sake of showing off the NHL's involvement more so than actually caring about the event)

- They had some players Humboldt announce the Calder, along with NHL TV crew.  Staff and kids missed the que.

- They keep flashing to various members of the audience and they look bored as hell.

It's been 45 minutes mind you.

Well, okay then. Not much.

Yeah Boyler!

Edit: Also, couldn't they have been a little more delicate with Staal's situation?  How about something like "Staal and his wife tragically lost their daughter during the 2018 season."  Rather than "THEY ANNOUNCED THEIR DAUGHTER WAS BORN STILLBORN DUE TO A BRAIN DEFECT".  Maybe I'm being overdramatic.

Those guys do some funny bits.

Their videos are actually pretty much.  Feel like they're good in small doses, their videos are usually <5 minutes.

So, naturally, the NHL was like "let's give them 15 minutes of stage time".  Of course.

Because they're funnier than anything their writers could come up with and probably came for an 18 pack of Molson Ice.
