Who's going to win Coach of the Year?

My vote is for Torts! But if he wins, will he get fired next year? The last winner lasted only 11 months afterwards (Bob Hartley).

A few of recent Jack Adams winners, lost there position after the next season. Not wishes ill for Torts, but he would be a good candidate. Trots, Torts, Boucher, Mclellan would be up there in my final 4 for the award

It would have to be John Tortorella or Bruce Boudreau at this point. Both teams have gone from next to nothing and are having incredible seasons barely even wavering. Almost wire to wire success. And for the Wild to not falter after their hot streak ended must have taken some great coaching.

I would have considered Edmonton's Todd Mclellen earlier in the season except that since the All Star break the team has only seemed average at best. Not a good way to go into the awards season. Some might also argue that McDavid was driving the team's success, not necessarily the coach. At any rate, I wouldn't consider him at this point.
