Just the fact that he took over and took a team from last place to the ECF is astonishing and he should be highly regarded just based upon that, regardless of all the other success this team has had.

Most teams that have that bad of a year take years to recover and restock talent, and while I know we had a few young pieces in place (carter, richards) it was far more than that, and we never had to go through years of rebuilding. The fact that makes this even more outstanding is that our lottery pick didnt even contribute for a couple years (JVR) after he was drafted, while teams like the blackhawks got an instant boost from patty kane.
