Up next is the Jack Adams Award, given to the “Coach of the Year”. Nominees this year include Joe Sacco who got to Avalanche to the playoffs with a frankly weak team, Barry Trotz from Nashville, and Dave Tippett from Phoenix.
And the winner is… Dave Tippett.
Congratulations Dave. If you’re unaware, Dave Tippett was an assistant coach for the Kings for three seasons before he left for a solid performance in Dallas. Well done Dave. Now come back to Earth and lose some games to the Kings next year!
