Ottawa Senators head coach Paul MacLean has won the Jack Adams award as the NHL's coach of the year. MacLean led an injury-riddled Senators team to a 25-17-6 record and a 4-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens in the first round of the playoffs.
 
MacLean was a top-three selection on 56 of the 83 ballots cast, including 28 first-place votes, for 206 points, ahead of second-place Joel Quenneville of the Chicago Blackhawks (22 first-place votes, 160 points). Points are allocated on a 5-3-1 basis for first through third place.
 
MacLean guided the Senators to a berth in the Stanley Cup Playoffs despite the extended absence of several key players due to injury.

Can't believe Quenneville was 2nd. More consideration for having a stacked roster than Babs ever got, even in 07-08/08-09.

The Mustachioed One deserved it, and I'm glad he won.

Quenneville shouldn't even have been nominated.  After the NBC crew explained that it took Scotty Bowman talking to Kane to get him going again, it seems to me that any off-ice "coaching" that Quenneville gets credit for is actually all Scotty's doing.

Not to offend anyone cause I like MacLean and all.

 

But I don't agree.

 

Especially on the runners up as well.

Pretty good for a second year coach. Glad to see he wasn't a Dave Lewis  :no2:

Care to elaborate? (with regard to MacLean, not too concerned with the other two) 

 

Personally I think MacLean did what the Jack Adams represents: got the best out of his team during the regular season, dealing with losing 3 star players, arguably the most important players to their team, is taken as evidence that he was able to deal with adversity and therefore coached his team to the best they could do with the available roster (which is why I think Babcock should have been considered as well)

Q shouldn't have even been in the running.  MacLean should have won it and did, Babcock should have been runner up to his former padwan and 3rd choice....whatever.  I love how guys like MacLean and McLellan get nods for the trophy, but they both served under Babcock and he doesn't get s*** for credit.

Here's on elaborating thanks for asking

 

1. Babcock

2. Todd Richards

3. Michel Therrien

 

MacLean would have been 4th on my list.

Awesome for Paul, he is such a good coach, never truly realized it when he was an assistant. Joe Q looks like a child molester, my GF said that to me yesterday and now every time I see him I think that, lol.

Well they keep trying to give genius awards to Q during these playoffs for constantly swapping his lines, but frankly there have been so many it doesn't seem like strategy as much as blind mice throwing darts at a dartboard.

My only problem with Maclean winning is that even if I wasn't a Wings fan I'd be saying Babs should have had it. When you consider what he lost (not just retirement but our insane injury list) and the fact that he still got the Wings to the playoffs. The fact that Q was nominated was maybe the most irritating thing about the awards this year.

Elaborate: worked out with great care and nicety of detail
Nicety: a delicate or fine point
Detail: to relate or report with complete particulars
Complete: having all modifying or complementary elements included; thorough

Just saying.

Babcock should have won plain and simple. Q shouldn't even be there. Scotty is actually coaching him.

It's good to see the award go to the coach of a team that wasn't the front runner all year. Kind of like Hitchcock last year. As opposed to the Norris for example, which nominees are simply the top point getting defensemen.

The guy even acts like him. It's even more uncanny than how much Blashill sounds like Babcock.
