is voted on by the National Hockey League Broadcasters Association at
the end of the
regular season.

Sacco
, Colorado Avalanche

Barry Trotz, Nashville Predators

There’s almost no doubt that this award will go to Dave Tippett who took a team that was the joke of the NHL, both as a team and as a franchise, and surprised the hockey world with one hell of a season. While they weren’t able to overcome the Detroit Red Wings, his team proved that winning hockey can and will be successful in Arizona.
