Philadelphia selects coach Barry Trotz, the man that has done more with less than anyone could ever expect.

Jack Adams voting record: 2, 4, 4, 4, 11
1x Gold Medalist World Championship Assistant Coach
1x Silver Medalist World Championship Assistant Coach
Voted NHL Coach of the Year (06-07) by his peers
2nd longest tenured coach currently in NHL
Louis A.R. Pieri Memorial Award Winner for best coach in the AHL (1994)
1x Calder Cup Champion
Most games coached as first coach of an expansion team
1 of 10 coaches in NHL history to coach 750 games with one team

Barry Trotz is the first and only head coach in the Nashville Predators’ history. His career points percentage as an NHL head coach passed the .500 mark in 2006-07, and based on the success of the club, Trotz earned fourth place in balloting (by the NHL Broadcasters' Association) for the 2007 Jack Adams Award, given each season to "the NHL coach adjudged to have contributed the most to his team's success." He also served as an assistant coach for the Western Conference All-Stars at the 2007 NHL All-Star Game, and was named the NHL’s coach of the year by The Sporting News, an honor determined through a vote of his peers.

Trotz enters 2008-09 with the second-longest tenure among the NHL coaching fraternity, behind only Buffalo’s Lindy Ruff. He also ranks 10th in NHL history among games coached with the same team and 13th among wins with the same club.
