I don't place much stock into most NHL awards. That article is pretty much why. It looks at how well the team is doing and places all of that as the GM's doing somehow and doesn't mention how much luck was involved (a la Bobrovsky) or the bad stuff either (Shelley, Walker, Leighton, arguably Gagne). The GM of the year award might as well just go to one of top six teams in the standings automatically.

Conversely, Laviolette deserves to be in contention for coach of the year, but won't get it because the team is stacked and because he already has success with it last year.
