As it is a regular season's best coach award, I think that Roy will win it, but as a homer, Babcock should win it. With 421 man-games lost, losing their top-5 centers at one point, they made it into the playoffs.

If the Avs would have just snuck into the post-season, I'd definitely give it to Babcock. However, going from 29th to 3rd in one season is just too crazy of an accomplishment not to give it to Roy.

I think Roy takes it (and should), but I agree. I'd have Boudreau over Babcock.

Do you think not ever having won the Jack Adams increases your chances of winning it? 18 different winners in the last 18 seasons.

Roy will probably win it for having Colorado defying expectations all season long.

It'd be nice if Babcock got a Jack Adams award once. We all know he's that caliber of coach. I guess he'll just have to cry about it while holding onto his Cup ring though.

IMO it's generally an award for the coach of the team that most defied expectations.

So rookie coaches and coaches of very injured teams.

Hard to get into those categories twice.

Yes. The studies that have been done in baseball bear out a very clear pattern of bias in favor of a new face for several awards, including MVP. Oddly enough, the MVP part is flipped in hockey; it tends to go in favor of a known player instead of an upstart.

Cooper should win. No one had TB making the playoffs and they lost Stamkos for more than half the season.

Roy will win though.

For me, Cooper. Amazing job with an injured Stamkos, a bunch of rookies and Martin St. Louis asking for a trade midseason.

And no one had the Avs as a lottery team this season right? And no one thought the Avs defense was the worst in the league.

Roy should and will win, but I'm as equally impressed with Babcock and Coopers jobs.
Hopefully Babcock will one day win it, but this isn't his year. I also don't see why people were surprised by the Avs. I know no one expected them to be this good, but they were setup for a breakout year this year.

It's pretty much an award for quick turnarounds from season-to-season...hard to get rewarded when you're consistently good (and consistently employed).

Same as Detroit. Experts said Red Wings had about 15-20% chance of making the playoffs.

Seems about right. Also can't see Roy not winning it.

It's close between Babcock and Roy, but I choose Babcock. The way he was transitioning Grand Rapids players to the NHL was incredible, and he didn't have a Vezina contending goalie like Varlamov or Bishop.

Can someone explain to me why Boudreau deserves a nomination or one of these three?
