My point was more directed to the fact Quenneville has a ridiculously stacked team, and their current record was to be expected. The same goes for the Pens, but Bylsma had to deal with a bunch of injuries to key players - something Quenneville didn't have to worry about.
So if Quenneville is nominated, why not Bylsma? And my personnal opinion on the matter is that neither of them should be there. I think Therrien, Boudreau and McLean should be the three nominees.
Their current record was to be expected? Is this f'ing serious?
Of all the predictions and expectations, I can guarantee that if someone said the Hawks would be 30-5-4 at this point they would be laughed off the board. I don't think you realize how special the Hawks season has been. Remember that this team finished as the 6th seed last year and the 8th seed before that. They are a +46 right now after 39 games. That is insane.
The "on-pace" maybe will show you
-39 Games, 30 Wins, 5 Losses, 4 OTL, 64 Points, 129 Goals For, 83 Goals Against, +46 Goal Differential
Hawks "on pace" for...
-82 games, 63 Wins, 10 Losses, 9 OTL, 135 Points, 271 Goals For, 174 Goals Against, +97 Goal Differential
Last Years Presidents Trophy Winner(Canucks), for reference point...
-82 games, 51 Wins, 22 Losses, 9 OTL, 111 Points, 249 Goals For, 198 Goals Against, +51 Goal Differential
24 point difference. The difference between the Canucks being the 1st seed with the best record in the NHL(111 points) to missing the playoffs entirely and finishing 11th in the Conference. Yes, I realize these are only "on pace" statistics but the season is almost over and as a shortened season is concerned...completely relevant IMO.
Yes, surely this was expected...lmfao.

So the pens just clinched the divison, had a 15 game winning streak an will probably win the conference. And u ***** about him scratching joe vitale instead of glass? Glass played every game an will continue to, so get use to it.
Its the fact that an NHL head coach is consistently icing a line-up with only 3 centers while scratching 2 centers who can fill the empty position perfectly. I said Bylsma obviously does a lot right, but this just doesn't make any sense.
Glass an Adams bring alot of to the team? Plus they wanna keep the line up as close to the playoff line up as possible.
Adams does. Glass doesn't. Glass is completely inept offensively. He's nothing special defensively. He's our worst regular PK guy. He's just plain not that good at hockey.
And the playoff line-up shouldn't include Glass. When healthy, he's our 16th best forward. Right now, he's 14th. He is just straight up worse at hockey than Joe Vitale and Dustin Jeffrey. And when Bennett gets scratched and Glass stays in, I may cry.
