John Tortorella and Ken Hitchcock will be two of the finalists. Dave Tippett will probably be the 3rd finalist. PHX won their division.

The finalists will be revealed at 11am.

The award is based on regular season performance. The voting has already taken place. MacLean? Ottawa finished 8th. Nobody expected them to make the playoffs but the other 3 guys won their divisions. Nobody expected them to win their divisions. The Rangers and Blues finished 2nd and 3rd overall.

Barry Trotz will get some votes. The 3rd guy is tricky. Tippett. Trotz.

Torts should get it. Nobody picked the Rangers to finish this high and they have played consistently all year .

Nobody picked the Rangers to finish 1st.

Tortorella speaks truth to power, at least, in a relative sense. (This aint Tienanmen Square). Not sure the league wants to reward that. This is a corporation, in essence.

No way Hitch doesn't take this one. What he did is far and away the most impressive accomplishment.

Hitch will win. He is more media friendly than Torts. The broadcasters vote for this award. Not the hockey writers.

Without a doubt it goes to Hitch, but very glad that Torts got the recognition he deserves.

What is the NHL Broadcasters Association? I'm assuming every announcer is in it, but is it TV and radio? How about analysts/color commentators like Micheletti?
