3. Bruce Bourdreau, Washington Capitals After an extremely successful season last year, leading the Caps to their first Southeast Division title in seven years and making the playoffs for the first time in five, Bourdreau is back at it again in 2009. Washington is once again atop their division with 102 points, and Bourdreau very well may repeat as the recipient of the Jack Adams award. Bourdreau runs his team with a very high level of respectability, which is evidenced by the way he handled the Ovechkin "celebration" in Tampa last month. After the incident, Boudreau went and personally apologized to Lightning coach Rick Tocchet for the whole ordeal. "I respect that he came by my office, face-to-face. It was a nice gesture." - Rick Tocchet Grant Beery, MVN Outsider, "Top Ten Coaches of 2008-2009"
