ESPN's LeBrun on Boudreau repeating as Jack Adams winner

From today's QOTW answers:

brownie0788: I am surprised there hasn't been more support for boudreau. He has made the Caps a significantly better team than last year that has a legitimate chance to go far in the playoffs. Also, the Caps are now a team and don't rely solely on AO to lead the way, and I think a lot of that can be attributed to the coach. Last year they barely got into the playoffs with a late season push which had a lot to do with getting very hot, especially with the goaltending, at the right time. This year the Caps have been consistently good aside from a few small losing streaks that Boudreau has always managed to pull the Caps out of.

My take: Well again, that's the funny thing about this award. Boudreau wins it last season because the Caps surprised everyone and won their division. This year, they are way better and challenging for the conference lead, but that hasn't surprised anyone, so Boudreau doesn't get any support for the Jack Adams. Same thing happened to Lindy Ruff. He won the Jack Adams in 2005-06 after the Sabres shocked us with a surprising season. But he didn't win the award the following season when the same team won the President's Trophy. Go figure. Bruce, Lindy knows your pain.

Pierre's pick?  Old friend Terry Murray.  Andy Murray.  (Sorry folks, I'm under the weather today and apparently have limited reading comprehension skills.)
