You can disagree with the nomination of a coach and explain why, it will probably lead to an insightful and interesting discussion.

If you say it's "the worst nomination ever", that "Therrien is an awful coach that has never won anything and never will", and such, it's overdramatic, emotionally-charged opinions that simply cannot be discussed in a civil manner. The only way you can have a conversation with someone with such extreme point of views is by using the same kind of rhetoric, which never leads to a real discussion, only to bickering and pointless arguing that almost always end up in name calling.
