Buccigross is a toolbox

in his most recent article for ESPN, he does his schtik about who he thinks deserve post season awards in the NHL. I vomited in my mouth a little after noticing a glaring omission from the Jack Adams portion. See if you notice it.

Jack Adams Award: Claude Julien

The Bruins went from eighth to first in the East without really adding any significant players. Julien managed everything well, from the goaltending to the forwards. He incorporated young players into the lineup and they all excelled. He actually reminds me of Ray Bourque behind the bench. He is sturdy, in control and understands defense wins championships. That's a good aura for the playoffs.

 

Honorable mention: Brent Sutter (New Jersey Devils), Bruce Boudreau (Washington Capitals), Paul Maurice (Carolina Hurricanes), Todd McLellan (San Jose Sharks), Joel "Q-Stache" Quenneville (Chicago Blackhawks), Ken Hitchcock (Columbus Blue Jackets), Barry Trotz (Nashville Predators).
