He presented the Vezina Trophy to Tim Thomas (Duana, this is pronounced vezz-na) at the NHL Awards last night in Vegas. Here’s the video. Ummmm... look at how he saunters out on stage. Hot.
Anyway, I’ve included here a selection of player photos from the event – and George Strombo because there are several of you who request him on a weekly basis – to satisfy some hockey porn which many of you have been asking for. I’m sorry if I’ve missed your particular quiver. These were mostly for my commentary. Like... I saw Pekka Rinne and wondered, why is Paul Bettany here. Right???
Congratulations again Boston. Here’s your beast Tim Thomas who now owns the Stanley Cup, the Conn Smythe, and the Vezina. Thomas posed with Roberto Luongo at one point too. Also Luongo with Daniel Sedin. And Luongo took the stage for the William M Jennings trophy with Cory Schneider. Sigh. Let us not speak of the heartbreak.
I LOVE Martin St Louis.
Not sure Lidstrom, who obviously has had a stud of a career, was better than Shea Weber this year. My vote would have gone to Weber.
You know... some hockey players, at least to me, are way hotter in uniform. If you’re in Vancouver, Ryan Kesler is probably on your Hockey Five List (he’s not on mine). So here’s Kesler winning the Selke. Do you like him in a suit?
Ryan Getzlaf – I get it about genes, I do. But either shave that sh-t, all of it, or get on the Propecia. Because this... this is not an option.
I LOVE Jonathan Toews. Too much. I mean look at him. He’s a child. Anyway, these portraits are killing me. So awkward, so cute, and compare his face to his major hockey man hands. It’s trippy, non?
