And finally, a lifetime achievement award will be handed out as well to a certain coach who should undoubtedly be in the Hockey Hall of Fame right now. I’m sure most of you will view this as a spoiler alert, but hey, I can’t be all about the hype. There will also be a couple of performances along the way, so sit back, relax and get ready for part two of the 2010 Rosie Awards, which will come your way tomorrow morning.
