And I can think of quite a few guys who would disagree with you!
Let's be honest, Q deserves at least consideration for coach of the year every year.
True on people disagreeing with me but I would rather a ref who explains his calls (to help my game) than someone who is a mute. Gotcha on the money, makes sense!
As for Coach Q - I agree but this year has been different than other years where they were stacked so to speak. Him trusting rookies, dealing with injuries, dealing with slumps, etc, etc - he has had to juggle the lineup far more this season (and rely on newly integrated players) than ever before. Plus, he got as much out of Richard Panik as anyone could have hoped - admittedly playing on a line with Toews helped with that but it was a smart call from Q to move him up from the 3rd or 4th line to the 1st line to get a tad extra ice time and better linemates to maximize his chances and Panik has made the most out of that opportunity.
