Coaches whose names are thrown around for the Jack Adams tend to be those coaches who get an entire group of guys to buy in and execute a system that is a large part of the team's success. And Boucher has definitely done this. It's less about his top line players, and more about bottom 6 type guys who work hard and compliment the top line players by being pretty responsible in their own end.

That being said, the personnel on that team is very strong, with guys like Purcell and Bergenheim, and now some good acquisitions on the back end, and of course, Roloson, who has been pretty stellar since his arrival in Tampa.

Depending on how well they do in the playoffs will probably determine how real his chances are of getting the Jack Adams, but he's not my favorite, that's for sure.
