Without a host this season, the 2012 NHL Awards promised more comedy bits from presenters (many of them painful) and taped segments from stars like Will Arnett, Kevin Smith and Tracy Morgan, which were actually funny.

"He's the Yoda of hockey ..."

Some funny stuff in there, especially the bikini girl training staff. But we can't lie — this would have been 10-times funnier if it had been Jay Mohr doing his Tracy Morgan impression for three minutes.

But there's something wickedly funny about John Tortorella's Sean Avery speech being applied to a fictional Tracy Morgan comedy character.
