If they had their way they would just call some of them the following:
Shooters award.
Friendliest player award.
Sorry about all my penalties award.
I pass the puck alot and my team mate scored award...
Jesus this could be the next biggest, dumbest suggestion by anyone!!!
Whats next a glowing puck!!!Oh we tried that.
If people are that stupid they need to just go watch basket ball, soccer because the balls are big and their little minds can follow the big ball better!!!
