To me, Holland is #1 hands down. Detroit's been the only power house in the NHL year after year for what..at least 10years now?? with some key trades and great drafting.

Lamariello does a good job, but the only reason his team has been performing for a good number of years is thx to Brodeur. Give them Price, give them Turco, give them Hasek, give them any goalie and NJ is probably not even in a PO spot today..
In other words, Brodeur is making his life a lot easier.

Bob Gainey I get, him and Timmins are killing it over here, he's also took tough decision in DAL such as Iginla for Nieuwendyk( Joe got them the cup and was PO MVP)..

Darryl Sutter, i dont get really..
Lou Lam's success is not just tied to Brodeur.
He's implemented a hard nosed on ice system that has worked through several coaching regimes which has been proven to work regardless of personnel. He's drafted well and retained good people.

He's pretty much been the gold standard for managing in the NHL for some time.
